About the book
Sustainable, and environment- friendly effects in products and materials are the current realization of the modern material world. Natural substances are perceived to provide the material, structure, and products that may offer increased acceptability in terms of sustainable performance with minimum or no hazard to the environment.
Montmorillonite, obtained from natural clay, has more recently demonstrated in many research studies to offer useful effects in material and products. Therefore, the interest in the study and evaluation of montmorillonite structure, properties, and modifications become important. Montmorillonite- polymer composites, and additive applications in paint, coating, fiber, metallurgy, and material structure, etc., are required for improved effects.
The aim of this book to provide an important source of understanding and development made in the study of montmorillonite. The book will cover topics including extraction, structure, and properties, modification (chemical and physical), applications and effects, montmorillonite- polymer composite, additive applications, and environmental issues related to the particle size, application, and usage.
