            A company called Nancor uses nanoclays dispersed in plastics to form a
            barrier to gases or improve fire resistance. A very mundane use is to
            produce lightweight bottles that resists leakage of carbon dioxide,
            therefore allowing bottles of soda to have a longer shelf life.

            Check on this webpage http://www.understandingnano.com/food.html for
            some more info and links to Nancor's website.

              hi electrocide,
              i am not sure what you were able to find out about nanoclays so i
              will relay a bit of what i have read & heard about it. nanoclays use
              amine chemistry. you can combine them with oragnics or inorganics and
              are used in flame retardants.(which is good since asbestoes is a
              monster & many chemicals are proving carcinogenic) some clays are
              montmorilonite, phyllosilicates. you have to purify out the shale &
              limestone. the processors use an acqueous separation process...pretty
              standard method. montellorite is magnesium aluminum silicate. most
              amazing it is pretty uniform in thickness. ~1nm or less. silica layer
              is bonded to alumina layer. the tetrahedral bonds to inner
              octahedral. maybe you find something if you search 'cation exchange
              capacity' which is what i did once upon a time...maybe need to hook
              up with globalspecs, databases or whatever. also try 'bentonite' if
              you want to know more about its natural compostion before processing.
              they are hydrophillic & notable it is doesn't have affinty with
              inorganics that are hydrophobic...odd huh? GM uses it a bit and some
              clay corps of course. look for it to show up in rubbers(maybe SBR...
              i dunno about that for sure), resins and some polymers for use as
              nanocomposites. i have been seeking applications of SBR-ferrite
              nanocomposites for someone but info is scarce so i can empathize on
              your inquiry about nanoclay.
              have a great one,
              ddd
