Synthesis of supramolecular gels based on electron-transfer reactions between clay nanotubes and styrene

Abstract

Abstract: A novel supramolecular gel is synthesized using styrene and halloysite nanotubes under ultrasound treatment, in which the nanotubes act as gelator for styrene gel. The formation of the gel arises from electron-transfer reactions between styrene to aluminium atom at the crystal edge and transition metal ion of the clay. The supramolecular gel is transparent and sensitive to temperature, which shows promising application for sensor, template, and gelling fuels.
