Magnetic ordering in nontronite pillared with Al-polyoxo cations
In this short communication we present preliminary results from our current investigation by 57Fe Moessbauer Spectroscopy of the effects of pillaring dioctahedral smectites with aluminium polyoxo cations. In particular we report here the marked effect found on the magnetic ordering of iron in Nontronite after pillaring it with the above cations.
