The design of nanocomposites consisting of functional metals and proper matrices is a very active field of research for the development of recyclable catalysts. Highly active metallic nanoparticles must be stabilized by a suitable support in order to prevent aggregation to bulk metal. Hectorite, a representative smectite clay featured by its unique swelling properties and flexible intercalation...
