Preparations For Clay - Surfactant Exchanged Soils

(Important Information and Notes About Clay)

  1. Clay is made from silicon dioxide
  2. If ions within the clay are changed, then clay absorbance, color, and exchange functions are affected

(Such ions incldue: Al3+, Mg2+, Si2+, Li+, and Fe2+ or 3+,)


  • In a 100mL closed cap beaker, weigh out ~ 2 grams of NaMT clay to do a 110% ion exchange with DMHXLBR
  • Next, complete calculations to determine how much DMHXLBR will be needed to complete 110% exchange
  1.9999 g NaMT x (92 meqv/100 g NaMT) x (1 mol DMHXLBR/1000 meqv) x (110/100)% x (431.45 g DMHXLBR/1 mol DMHXLBR) = 0.8732 g DMHXLBR
  • Then add a stir bar along with ~ 25mL of both H2O and ethanol to the clay and surfactant DMHXLBR mixture
  • Afterwards, cap the beaker and begin stirring the solution on a stir plate for ~ 1 week

(Repeat the entire process again in order to complete a 110% exchange with laponite clay and surfactant DMHXLBR)

  • Complete calculations to determine how much Bu3HdP+ will be needed to complete 50% exchange
  2.9672 g NaMT x (55 meqv/100 g NaMT) x (1 mol DMHXLBR/1000 meqv) x (110/100)% x (431.45 g DMHXLBR/1 mol DMHXLBR) = 0.7745 g DMHXLBR

(Repeat the entire process again in order to complete a 50% exchange with NaMT clay and surfactant, Bu3HdP+)

  • Complete calculations to determine how much Bu3HdP+ will be needed to complete 50% exchange
  2.0001 g NaMT x (92 meqv/100 g NaMT) x (1 mol Bu3HdP+/1000 meqv) x (50/100)% x (507.65 g Bu3HdP+/1 mol Bu3HdP+) = 0.4671 g Bu3HdP+

  • Surfactant exchanged clays were prepared based upon the exchange ratios and calculations.
  • For the 110% CEC Laponite w/ DMHXLBR actually 50mL of each of both ethanol and water was used.
