Intercalation of urea between kaolinite nanolayers for controlled release fertilizer application

In this study the high surface area of kaolinite nanolayers was exploited as a reservoir of urea in order to minimize nitrogen leaching, to prepare controlled release fertilizer (CRF). Urea was intercalated between kaolinite nanolayers through three different methods including ultrasonication as we...
