PLA and Montmorilonite Nanocomposites: Properties, Biodegradation and Potential Toxicity
The concern related to solid waste increases efforts to develop products based on biodegradable materials. At present, PLA has one of the highest potentials among biopolyesters, particularly for packaging. However, its ...
Adsorption Of Benzene, Toluene, And Xylene (btx) From Binary Aqueous Solutions Using Commercial Organoclay
Selective sorption of mercury(II) from aqueous solution with an organically modified clay and its electroanalytical application
(Taylor & Francis Inc, 2006-01-01)
The organo-clay used in this work was prepared from a Na-montmorillonite (Wyoming-USA deposit) by treatment with water solution of hexadecyltrimethylammonium cations. As organo-clays exhibit strong sorptive capabilities ...
Effects of Preparation Methods of Organoclays with Polyvinyl Alcohol in their Compatibility with HDPE. Thermal Stability
(Global Advanced Research Journals, 2013-09)
In this paper, the effect of polyvinyl alcohol addition on organoclay obtained by in situ polymerization and subsequent alcoholysis of polyvinyl acetate is studied. The incorporation of the monomer is carried out following ...
Hydraulic Conductivity of Organoclay and Organoclay-Sand Mixtures to Fuels and Organic Liquids
(Asce-amer Soc Civil Engineers, 2015-02)
Hydraulic conductivity, swelling, and liquid sorption capacity (i.e., maximum organic liquid mass bound per mass organoclay solid) were measured for an organoclay with dimethylammonium bound to the surface. Five fuels (No. ...
PLA and Organoclays Nanocomposites: Degradation Process and Evaluation of ecotoxicity Using Allium cepa as Test Organism
In this study, nanocomposites of PLA and organoclays Cloisite 20A and Cloisite 30B were prepared by the melt intercalation method and the obtained samples were characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Since ...
Preparation and characterization of soy lecithin-modified bentonites
(Elsevier Science, 2016-04-14)
In this work, a study of exchange of soy lecithin, a natural product, in bentonite was performed in order to synthesize bio-organoclays. The effects of initial amount of modifier and reaction time were studied at a fixed ...
Effect of the organoclay preparation on the extent of intercalation/exfoliation and barrier properties of polyethylene/PA6/montmorillonite nanocomposites
Nanocomposites of HDPE matrix and 3 wt % organoclay/PA6 discontinuous phase were prepared in a mixer chamber. These nanocomposites of organoclay, PA6, and HDPE were characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron and ...
Improvement of toughness in polypropylene nanocomposite with the addition of organoclay/silicone copolymer masterbatch
Caracterización superficial y textural de organoarcillas pilareadas con TiO2Surface and textural characterization of TiO2 pillared organoclays
(Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro. Coordenação dos Programas de Pós-Graduação em Engenharia. Laboratório de Hidrogênio, 2015-09)
TiO2 organoclays are potential adsorbents for aqueous pollutants and subsequently they could favour the photocatalysis of them. For this reason, the study of their surface and textural characteristics is important for the ...
