Nanotechnology is one of the most important tools in modern agriculture, and agri-food nanotechnology is anticipated to become a driving economic force in the near future. Clay containing soils are considered to be precious due to their nutrient rich nature and water retaining properties. Liquid Nanoclay has been developed as a solution to these problems and a hopeful process to transform poor-quality sandy soils into high-yield agricultural land. Liquid nanoclay is obtained by creating a dispersion of clay nanoflakes in aqueous media through a patented mixing process which includes creating subsequent laminar and turbulent flow conditions.
Liquid nano clay are recognized as promising advanced materials due to their superior properties, such as enhanced density, strength, relatively large surface areas, high elastic modulus, ?ame retardancy, and thermo-mechanical/optoelectronic/magnetic properties.
