Abstract

The industrial application of kaolinite is closely related to its reactivity and surface properties. The reactivity of kaolinite can be tested by intercalation, i.e. via the insertion of low molecular weight organic compounds between the kaolinite layers resulting in the formation of a nano-layered organo-complex. Although intercalation of kaolinite is an old and ongoing research topic, there is a limited knowledge available on the reactivity of different kaolinites, the mechanism of complex formation as well as on the structure of the complexes formed. Grafting and incorporation of exfoliated kaolinite in polymer matrices and other potential applications can open new horizons in the study of kaolinite intercalation. This paper attempts to summarize (without completion) the most recent achievements in the study of kaolinite organo-complexes obtained with the most common intercalating compounds like urea, potassium acetate, dimethyl sulphoxide, formamide and hydrazine using vibrational spectroscopy combined with X-ray powder diffraction and thermal analysis.

17 citations in Web of Science®

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® 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.
