Palygorskite Versus Tetra (N-Methylpyridyl) Porphyrin: Characterization and Interaction
Palygorskite is a natural clay mineral that has many potentially important uses in different industrial fields as it is an effective support for guests loading and controlled-release. The photofunctional properties of organic molecules, such as porphyrins, are described to stand as promising properties for various applications. In this context, our primary goal consists in understanding the palygorskite interactions with porphyrins. Hybrids clay/porphyrin were studied b means of XRD, FTIR, UV-Visible and fluorescence spectroscopy in order to evidence the porphyrins interactions (surface or interlayer) relative to the clay associated properties.
