Clay minerals are phyllosilicates of nanoscale dimensions. According to their ability to entrap and release organic moieties, they have found applications in several fields, such as drug carrier and delivery, support for catalyst, environmental remediation and filler for polymeric matrices. The possibility to modify, by covalent linkage, their surfaces gives the possibility to form new nanomaterials with improved properties respect to the pristine clay minerals.

Abstract

Clay minerals are phyllosilicates of nanoscale dimensions. According to their ability to entrap and release organic moieties, they have found applications in several fields, such as drug carrier and delivery, support for catalyst, environmental remediation and filler for polymeric matrices. The possibility to modify, by covalent linkage, their surfaces gives the possibility to form new nanomaterials with improved properties respect to the pristine clay minerals. In this chapter, the modifications of the siloxane surfaces of the most representative clay minerals, namely montmorillonite, sepiolites, laponite and halloysite were reviewed and discussed.
