Abstract: Layered clay has been of great interest because of their nano-sized layer structure and hence intercalation and ion-exchange capacity to be used as a host material of composite with polymers and/or metals. In this study, smectite as a silicate-layered clay was easily exfoliated and dispersed into purified water, and was deposited onto a cupper plate for which dc voltage ranging from + 1.0 V to + 6.0 V was applied with respect to a counter platinum plate electrode. The cupper plate was pre-treated by chemical…
