    Micelle-Like Microaggregate Morphology in Framework of Gelled Montmorillonite
    Author(s): Żbik MS, William DJ and Trzciński JTŻbik MS, William DJ and Trzciński JT

    Particle space arrangement within three-dimensional (3D) structured networks in clay suspension may prevent clay particles and aggregates from settling under gravity force and encapsulate water within such a network which results in stabilize gel formation. To better understand this phenomenon, a microstructural investigation was conducted on Wyoming montmorillonite clay suspension gelled by aluminium chlorohydrate in water. Gel morphology was studied with the aid of a synchrotron-powered transmission x-ray microscope (TXM) and cryogenic scanning electron microscope (Cryo-SEM). A new type of globular micro-morphology and the particle space arrangement was observed. For the first time, globular micro-aggregate morphology was found where flexible smectite flakes were curled and build globular aggregates. These aggregates were observed to assembly multilayer, micella .. View More»
