Synthesis of imogolite: a tubular aluminium silicate polymer

Abstract

Heating weakly acidic dilute solutions containing hydroxyaluminium orthosilicate complexes gives a fibrous polymer, each fibre consisting of tubes about 2·2 nm external diameter and 1·0 nm internal diameter, essentially identical with those of the natural mineral, imogolite.
