Study on Preparation and Modification of Oil-Soluble Nano-MMT


Article Preview

We discuss two methods of preparation and modification on nanoMMT, one is called “one-step method”, and another is called “two-steps method”. And then we use the IR, TEM, XRD, granulometer and sedimentation to test the effect of modification. The result shows that two methods can also modify nanoMMT, but the nanoMMT made by “one-step method” in lubricate oil is more stable and dispersed than another’s. Average grain diameter of nanoMMT made by “one-step method” in lubricate oil is 46nm, while another’s is 69.75nm. Also, it’s layer distance has expanded from 1.52nm to 2.10nm.
