Abstract

We present the first phase behaviour study of South Australian NAu.1 Nontronite clays (1) exfoliated in water and their orientation response in varying magnetic fields. We also describe a novel route for the grafting of water-soluble thermo-responsive polymers onto the edges of the nanoclay platelets.
