Effect of external high pressures on the clay mineral sodium montmorillonite intercalated with methylated octadecylammonium bromide surfactants
Butler, Ian S., Baril, Martin, Xi, Yongfei, & Frost, Ray L. (2011) Effect of external high pressures on the clay mineral sodium montmorillonite intercalated with methylated octadecylammonium bromide surfactants. Inorganica Chimica Acta, 375(1), 53-56.
Raman microprobe spectra of the clay mineral Wyoming SWy-2-sodium montmorillonite intercalated with the surfactants, methyltrioctadecylammonium bromide (TOMA) dimethyldiotadecylammonium bromide (DODMA) and octadecyl-trimethylammonium bromide (ODTMA), have been measured in the CH2 stretching region at external pressures up to ~40 kbar with the aid of a diamond-anvil cell. In the case of the intercalated clays containing TOMA and DODMA, the Raman data afford evidence for gauche to trans conformational changes in the orientation of the CH2 chains in the surfactants with increasing pressure. These conformational changes are reversed completely upon the release of pressure.
