Rubber-Clay Nanocomposites: Science, Technology, and by Maurizio Galimberti

By Maurizio Galimberti

The one-stop source for rubber-clay nanocomposite information

The first finished, single-volume booklet to assemble all of the most vital info on rubber-clay nanocomposites in a single position, Rubber-Clay Nanocomposites: technological know-how, expertise, and functions studies rubber-clay nanocomposites in an easy-to-reference layout designed for R&D professionals.

Including contributions from specialists from North the USA, Europe, and Asia, the publication explores the houses of compounds with rubber-clay nanocomposites, together with their rheology, curing kinetics, mechanical homes, and plenty of others.

Rubber-clay nanocomposites are of becoming curiosity to the clinical and technological group, and feature been proven to enhance rubber compound reinforcement and impermeability. those traditional mineral fillers are of capability curiosity for large-scale functions and are already making an influence in numerous significant fields. filled with worthy information regarding the synthesis, processing, and mechanics of those bolstered rubbers, the booklet covers diverse rubber-clay nanocomposites purposes, resembling in automobile tires and as polymer fillers.

Promoting universal wisdom and interpretation of an important features of rubber-clay nanocomposites, and clarifying the most effects accomplished within the box of rubbers and crosslinked rubbers—something now not coated in different books within the field—Rubber-Clay Nanocomposites is helping scientists comprehend morphology, vulcanization, permeability, processing equipment, and characterization components speedy and simply.

Sample text

It has been used to synthesize elastomer nanocomposites [39,40]. Its formula unit is Al2Mg6(OH)16(CO3)Á4H2O. The hydrotalcite denomination probably stems from a perceived similarity with hydrated talc, although the two structures are in fact quite different. 22 CLAYS AND CLAY MINERALS The layers of hydrotalcite are constituted of a single octahedral sheet with all of the corners of the octahedra being occupied by hydroxide (OH À ) ions. While there exist other minerals such as brucite (Mg3(OH)6) based on uncharged sheets of this type, hydrotalcite and other members of the LDH family contain isomorphous substitutions.

Yet there are important differences in behavior; in particular, CSH do not swell. 6 Nonphyllosilicate Cationic Layered Minerals (O or Mixed T–O) The extended family of layered inorganic materials is not limited to silicates. There exist layers based on negatively charged octahedral sheets (O) with exchangeable hydrated cations between these sheets, for example, layered titanates (Kþ )2(Ti4O9)2 À , and so on [34] or titanoniobates (Kþ )(TiNbO5) À , layered manganates, and so on. Zirconium phosphates and phosphonates have mixed sheets containing tetrahedral and octahedral units [35]; they have received considerable attention in the literature since the pioneering work of Alberti and his coworkers [36].

The environments of formation include soil horizons, continental and marine sediments, geothermal fields, volcanic deposits, and weathering rock formations. Most clay minerals form where rocks are in contact with water, air, or steam. Examples of these situations include weathering boulders on a hillside, sediments on sea or lake bottoms, deeply buried sediments containing pore water, and rocks in contact with water heated by magma (molten rock). All of these environments may cause the formation of clay minerals from preexisting minerals by dissolution– reprecipitation.
