• Imogolite - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imogolite Imogolite is an aluminium silicate clay mineral with the chemical formula Al 2 SiO 3 (OH) 4.It occurs in soils formed from volcanic ash and was first described in 1962 for an occurrence in Uemura, Kumamoto prefecture, Kyushu Region, Japan. Its name originates from the Japanese word imogo, which refers to the brownish yellow soil derived from volcanic ash.It occurs together with allophane ...

    www.sciencedirect.com/topics/agricultural-and-biological-sciences/imogolite Based on the fact that organic acids prevent the format ion of imogolite and that proto-imogolite sols were absent in the solution of the upper compartment, they concluded that imogolite formed in situ and that migration was unlikely. This method is an interesting tool to study weathering, although it is confined to the study of present-day ...

    pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/nn700184k The aluminosilicate mineral imogolite is composed of single-walled nanotubes with stoichiometry of (HO)3Al2O3SiOH and occurs naturally in soils of volcanic origin. In the present work we study the stability and the electronic and mechanical properties of zigzag and armchair imogolite nanotubes using the density-functional tight-binding method.

Hence, concentration of imogolite inside the polymer matrix should be controlled. High concentration of imogolite will force the nanotube to hold
