Edge-Modification of Laponite with Dimethyl-octylmethoxysilane
This study examines the edge modification of laponite, with a monoalkoxy silane, dimethyloctyl methoxysilane. The influence of ultrasonics, aging time and silane concentration on the resultant materials is examined. The silylated clays are characterized by XRD, IES, TGA, and Si-NMR. The amount of grafted silane was increased by increasing the ratio of silane to clay, sonication of the reaction mixture and ageing the reaction mixture for no more than 24 hours to avoid removal of grafted silane due to equilibrium effects.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
