Abstract

Layered octosilicate was exfoliated by stirring didecyldimethylammonium- exchanged silicate in pentane with ultrasonication. The silicate framework was retained at least partly even after the exfoliation. Loosely arranged decyl groups in the interlayers probably induce the exfoliation. This exfoliation method should be applicable to other layered alkali silicates.
