Smectite clays such as montmorillonite, hectorite, and saponite have been used as inorganic fillers in many polymers.
The inorganic core maybe natural or synthetic nanoclays: bentonite, silica, titania, zirconia or calcite, ferrite, alumina, hectorite, double layered hydroxides, or a mixture of clays [19-21].
In addition, bentonite is also composed of the mineral feldspar, quartz, sauconite and hectorite.
