Pillared clays have shown a diversity of behaviors -indicating that they may find applications as catalysts. The theoretical pore sizes for aluminum Keggin ion- pillared clays are calculated and compared with literature data. Layered phosphates and titanates have much higher charges, which should produce smaller cavities. Methods of achieving a range of pore sizes are described and compared to preliminary experimental results on the pillaring of these classes of layered compounds.
