Abstract

A new method, solid state shear milling (S3M), was reported for realizing the exfoliation and layer expansion of vermiculite layer in solid state by using pan-mill equipment, which can exert fairly strong squeezing force and shearing force on milled materials. The mechanism was discussed. © 2006 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Appl Polym Sci 101: 1806–1809, 2006
