Oleate–LDH Hybrids by the Successive Use of the Clay Structural "Memory Effect"
Abstract:Oleate/LDH composites have been obtain by calcination–reconstruction procedures by the successive uses of the anionic clay memory effect. XRD and FTIR analysis were used to study the structural characteristics of the hybrid samples. The amount of oleate in the hybrid formulation of the clay matrix is highest after the second calcination–reconstruction cycle. After the fourth cycle the clay structure is not recovered anymore. This result points out to the "short" structural "memory" of the LDH-like clays. Textural features of the samples were studied by N2 adsorption at 77 K, SEM and TEM analyses. The oleate/LDH hybrids, obtained by the successive uses of the clay "memory," are defined by different crystallinity and micromorphological characteristics.
