found that the proper content of organophilic
montmorillonite (OMMT) could reduce the cell size and increase the cell density of PBS/Polylactic (PLA)/OMMT foams.
The dopamine layer on the GF surface had rendered the surface more organophilic
with greater wettability of the epoxy resin.
Available with organophilic
surface modification to improve dispersion and reduce energy requirements during processing.
One of the suggested solutions to overcome this problem was the use of more accelerators than sulfur and/or by filling with suitable filler such as organophilic
grade of carbon black.
All of these changes refer to the organophilic
modification of Na-MMT by CTAB in the prepared sample of organo-MMT [19, 22-26].
(8) investigated the effects of organophilic
clay concentration on nonisothermal crystallization of poly(L-lactic acid) (PLLA)/montmorillonite (MMT) nanocomposites.

graphene nanosheets," Carbon, vol.
These galleries are normally occupied by cations such as [Na.sup.+], [Ca.sup.2+], and [Mg.sup.2+] and are easily able to form organophilic
clays by the introduction of alkylammonium ions or other organic cation by exchange reaction.
Natural clays and polymers are incompatible with each other since they show different characters being inherently hydrophilic and organophilic
On the contrary, [t.sub.2] and [t.sub.90] are reduced when organophilic
MMTs are added to the rubber blend.
The MMT Cloisite [Na.sup.+] is not organophilic
treated resulting in very high values of normalized detectors' intensity (light extinction) in the range of 0.6 (Fig.
These type of clays are naturally hydrophilic and contain [Na.sup.+], [K.sup.+] and [Ca.sup.2+] ions in free state between layers, which can be exchanged with organophilic
surfactants for achieving compatibility between clay and polymer matrix.
