Before 500[degrees]C, the composite membranes lose weight faster than the QPSF membrane because of the decomposition of the intercalating agents.
Cations in the interlayer of Mt exchanged under the action of external mechanical energy, and the energy of [C.sub.4][mim.sup.+] keeps changing during intercalating Mt (Table1), which indicates the stability of the structure.
When the intercalating temperature and the mass ratio of NFG, KMn[O.sub.4], and HCl[O.sub.4] were kept at 30[degrees]C and 1:0.4:10.56, respectively, the effect of reaction time on EV was analyzed and the results are shown in Figure 2.
The cost of second and third classes of intercalating dyes is more than the first class ([SYBRR.sup.[R]] Green I).
Use of the fluorescent intercalating dye POPO-3, YOYO-1 for ultrasensitive detection of double strand DNA separated by capillary electrophoresis with hydroxypropylmethyl cellulose and non-cross-linked polyacrylamide.
However, the presence of residual reflections assigned to the nitrate-containing LDHs suggested the incomplete replacement of intercalating anions.
In this work, the solution intercalation was performed because it allows intercalating polymers with little or no polarity into layered structure and facilitates the production of oriented-clay intercalated layer [7, 27].
To do this, here we proposed three steps: first, activating the structure of sericite to make it have more exchangeable cations and intercalation properties; second, modifying layered structure of sericite by cation surfactant such as CTAB; third, intercalating polymer into organic sericite interlayers to exfoliate entirely or partly its layers.
The block copolymer can be used with existing commercially-available clays or used as an intercalating compound for producing clay nanoparticles.
Someya and Shibata (24) studied the morphology and thermal and mechanical properties of VER-clay nanocomposites with clay intercalating agent.
The fluorescence due to europium in LDHs has also been introduced by intercalating anionic europium complexes in the interlayer space represented by [A.sup.m-] in the general formula [10, 12, 13]; however, the first approach to produce fluorescent LDH is more attractive since the interlayer space is available for further exchange reactions [11].
