Abstract

In this study, mono- and di-alkyl cationic surfactants were used to prepare organoclays through ion exchange and the prepared organoclays were characterised by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and thermogravimetric analysis (TG). Larger basal spacings were observed in the interlayer of the organoclays intercalated with DDDMA than organoclays intercalated with DDTMA. The DTG curves identify the thermal stability of organoclays intercalated with two different types of surfactants (DDTMA and DDDMA) and the different arrangements of the surfactant molecules intercalated in the montmorillonite. Both organoclays intercalated with organic surfactant molecules proved to be thermally stable at high temperature. This study provides an understanding of the structure and properties of organoclays, which will enhance the potential applications of organoclays in environmental remediation.
