Title: Pillared Clays and Other Porous Layered
Completion Date: 1999 - Project Completed
Pillared clays and other porous layered structures (PLS) form a class
of advanced materials, designed for their specific surface properties.
They are synthesized from crystalline layered inorganic solids. The
pillaring agent must be structurally robust and thermally stable so
as to create permanent porosity. There is a wide range of layered
inorganic solids, which can be pillared and there are different ways
of pillaring. The scope of this study is twofold: (1) to propose a
consistent nomenclature and terminology; and (2) to define the criteria
to be fulfilled for a material to be called pillared.
