The decrease can been related to a collapse of the intergallery chains of the surfactant (dimethyl, dehydrogenated
tallow, quaternary ammonium) between the MLS plates and a transition from pendant bilayers to a lateral monolayer.
It is an organic treated montmorillonite with the modifier dimethyl, dehydrogenated
tallow, quaternary ammonium salt.
The clay is produced by treating unmodified montmorillonite (MMT) with dimethyl, dehydrogenated
tallow quaternary ammonium chloride with a d spacing of 2.
The Cloisite 15A was often used to promote the exfoliated level of MMT in polymer matrix owing to the existence of dimethyl dehydrogenated
tallow quaternary ammonium as an organic modifier.
The alkyl modification consists of dimethyl, dehydrogenated
tallow, and quaternary ammonium ions as shown in Scheme 1.
This clay is produced by treating unmodified MMT (Montmorillonite) with Dimethyl, dehydrogenated
tallow quaternary ammonium chloride and has a basal or d spacing of 2.
b) 2M2HT, dimethyl, dehydrogenated
tallow (~65%, C18; 30%, C16; 5%, C14, like stearic acid), quaternary ammonium.
