The comparison shows that the dynamic strength of mudded intercalations is generally smaller than that of loess, silt, clay, and other common soils.
Inorganic/organic GICs were synthesized with facile electrochemical intercalation process (see Figure 1).
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.
Among the NBRs, the improvement in the strength was found to be higher for NBR with higher acrylonitrile content and the results were explained by means of XRD data, which showed that the extent of intercalation was a function of the polarity of the rubber.
by cation exchange or by intercalation of organic molecules.
In the studied material, intercalation occurs in direct speech and in many cases in the adjoining turns within dialogue.
* intercalation of the polymer from a solution (solution intercalation);
The extrapolated ratio of the number of intercalations per 19 years was used as an indicator of constancy.
Dolostone is microcrystalline with intercalations of thin laminae of siliclastic mudstone and gypsum.
However, the intercalation of MMA into the interlayer spaces of GO and the following in-situ polymerization have not been reported.
* The presence of clay intercalations might halt the infiltration of water due to their poor permeability of this strata and hence groundwater recharge could be the main concern in the case of extended drought periods.
Intercalations of the polymer chains in clay were examined through wide-angle X-ray diffraction (XRD) and electron microscopies (SEM and TEM).
