Self‐supporting, flexible films of montmorillonite that retain the fundamental characteristics of the mineral have been produced (The Figure shows a cross‐sectional view). This demonstrates that one practical disadvantage of clay minerals‐that they are usually only available as powders‐can be overcome. Further examples of the extension of microscopic layer structures to the macroscopic scale to produce “molecularly defined ceramics” are presented. (Figure Presented.)
