Padhi and coworkers have studied the mechanical and morphological properties of halloysite
nanotubes filled ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer nanocomposites and analyzed by FTIR and SEM images.
Exploration activities are currently being planned for Mount Hope, where a historic non-JORC 12.2Mt halloysite-kaolin resource has been reported (ASX announcement 24 October 2018 - 'Exploration Licence Application for Mount Hope Halloysite-Kaolin'), and at Camel Lake where high purity halloysite
surface samples have been collected.
Researchers have showcased the process of delivering anti-cancer drug into human cells using bio-compatible 50-nm diameter halloysite
It is a moderately pure clay that mostly consists of kaolinite and other clay minerals, including anauxite, halloysite
, dickite, and nacrite.
nanotubes (HNTs) are novel one-dimensional natural nanomaterials with predominantly hollow tubular nanostructures and high aspect ratios.
However, they detected partial dissolution of gibbsite and halloysite

nanotubule clay for efficient water purification," Journal of Colloid and Interface Science, vol.
Kaolinite was a 1: 1 clay layer, and dehydrates more than halloysite
Clay, diatomite, halloysite
, active carbon, silica, expanded graphite, and graphene have been employed as fillers to prevent melted PCMs from leaking during the phase transition via physical adsorptions, relying on their predominantly polar surface and/or high porous structures [16-23].
In the case of organic matrices, it is reported that epoxy based coatings  containing metal oxides nanoparticles significantly improved the corrosion resistance of the coated steel, with the [Fe.sub.2][O.sub.3] and halloysite
clay nanoparticles being the best.
