Abstract

A novel method is reported for surfactant modification of montmorillonite (Mt), and then the performance of the surfactant-modified Mt was investigated for the removal of perchlorate (ClO4 ). Mt was first modified with dimethyl dioctadecyl ammonium chloride (DDAC) under microwave irradiation, which was followed by a second modification with benzyl octadecyl dimethyl ammonium chloride (BODAC). The influence of the added amount of DDAC in terms of ClO4 adsorption to the modified Mt was intensively investigated. In addition, sequential and simultaneous-mixing methods were compared for preparation of the modified Mt in terms of ClO4 removal performance. Using sequential modification, addition of DDAC corresponding to 0.05 times the cation exchange capacity of Mt significantly increased BODAC uptake, resulting in the highest adsorption capacity for ClO4 (1.08 mmol/g). This can be explained by the good balance between the decrease of steric hindrance and the formation of a hydrophobic interface because of adsorbed DDAC. In contrast, for a composite synthesized with the same ratio of DDAC to BODAC, the simultaneous-mixing method resulted in modified Mt with much poorer ClO4 removal performance than the sequential modification method because of the negligible contribution of DDAC to BODAC uptake by Mt. Moreover, a high binding affinity of ClO4 to the sequentially modified composite was obtained because of hydrophobicity of interlaced alkyl chains.
