Abstract in another language

Impacts of organophilic clay on open cell foams created from high-internal phase emulsion templating were explored. Improving mechanical properties such as compression modulus by fillers is typically most challenging to realize. We investigated the effect of two different fillers: synthetic hectorite organophilized with a custom-made organo-cation and commercial organophilic montmorillonite. Contrary to the montmorillonite, the hectorite could significantly improve the foam mechanics, up to four times for foams with a relative density of 4.1%. Investigation of bulk mechanics and the morphology of foams led to the conclusion that the foam mechanics improvement is not due to a reinforcement of the struts. Instead, the organophilic hectorite might act as a Pickering emulsifier in addition to the molecular surfactants to achieve a more consistent structure, which in particular possesses more uniform strut thickness and improved mechanical properties.
