Synthesis of wheat-atta enriched nano clay polymer composite and evaluation of its effect on soil water properties


Author(s): Giriraj, Nde and Ravindra Meena

Abstract: In this chapter an attempt has been made to synthesized of Atta-wheat flour enriched Nano Clay polymer Composite and further investigate water absorption pattern of Atta-wheat flour enriched NCPC in distilled water, salt solution, water retention and re-swelling capacity of NCPC added soil. This experiment conducted using different concentration of Atta-wheat flour (1%, 2% and 4%) with 10% NCPC. The results revealed that due to addition of Atta-wheat flourincrease the water absorbance in both distilled and different salt solution (NaCl2, CaCl2 and AlCl3), re-swelling and water retention capacity of soil (Alluvial, Red and Sandy soil). Maximum water absorbance in distilled water and water retention found with 4% Atta-wheat flour and absorbance in salt water found in 2% Atta-wheat flour. The effect of different cationon water absorbance found in following order Na+> Ca2+>Al3+.The maximum water retention by alluvial soil
