The dynamic behaviour of n-octylammonium ions intercalated into tetrasilicicfluormica was investigated by measuring 1H and 2H solid state NMR spectra and 1H spin-lattice relaxation times. X-Ray diffraction measurements revealed that the cations are arranged with the long axis parallel to the clay sheet. Uniaxial rotation of cations was found to take place above ca. 200 K among non-equivalent potential wells made by clay sheets. As a new type of 2-D motion mode, whole cationic in-plane tumbling in the 2-D layer seems to be excited above ca. 450 K. The obtained results are compared with those previously reported on saponite of an analogous structure.
