The application of modified-bentonite-enhanced oil dispersion in water and oil-mineral aggregate (OMA) formation was studied in the laboratory. The effect of modification on the surface properties of bentonite was characterized. The hydrophobicity and surface electric properties of bentonite were significantly

Molecular dynamics simulations were carried out to investigate the diffusive behavior of aqueous uranium species in montmorillonite pores. Three uranium species (UO(2)(2+), UO(2)CO(3), UO(2)(CO(3))(2)(2-)) were confirmed in both the adsorbed and diffuse layers. UO(2)(CO(3))(3)(4-) was neglected in the subsequent analysis

Contamination of water by toxic heavy metals due to urbanization is a world-wide environmental problem, which changes chemical and biological properties of both surface and ground water. The heavy metals render the water unsuitable for drinking and are also highly


Nanoclays in Multi-Functional Composites

Nanoclays are clay minerals optimized for use in clay nanocomposites– multi-functional material systems with several property enhancements targeted for a particular application.

Nano Minerals: Nanoclays

Nanoclays are nanoparticles of layered mineral silicates. Montmorillonite, bentonite, and halloysite nanoclays and organoclays are used in polymer-clay nanocomposites, as rheology modifiers, and drug delivery carriers.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
