Preparation, intercalation and exfoliation of -zirconium phosphate with varying dimensions Conference Paper uri icon


  • Synthetic -zirconium phosphate (-ZrP) platelets with varying dimensions have been prepared via three different approaches. The -ZrP can be easily intercalated by amines and then exfoliated in epoxy to prepare polymer nanocomposites. Such nanocomposites containing exfoliated -ZrP sheets with varying aspect ratios can be used to study the structure-property relationship in polymer nanocomposites.
