English term or phrase:pillaring
What can be viewed as separate and distinct classes of chemical modification treatments to which the clays can be subjected is referred to as *pillaring* and delamination. *Pillaring" is a phenomenon whereby the platelets of certain clays are separated by intercallation of large guest cations between the negatively charged platelet sheets, which cations function as molecular props or pillars separating the platelets and preventing the layers from collapsing under van der Waals forces.
Kan dit gewoon *pillaring" blijven of bestaat hier een speciale term voor? Bij voorbaat zeer hartelijk dank.
