Intercalation of Poly[oligo(ethylene glycol)-oxalate] into Lithium Hectorite
Intercalation of poly[oligo(ethylene glycol)-oxalate] (POEGO) into lithium hectorite was conducted. A series of nanocomposite materials were prepared by varying the molar ratio of the polymer to the lithium hectorite. The nanocomposites were characterized using powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and attenuated total reflectance (ATR) spectroscopy. AC impedance spectroscopy was used to measure the ionic resistance of the nanocomposites when complexed with lithium triflate.
