However, its application remains limited due to its low dispersion in Aminoclay water. In this review paper, we introduce amino organophyllosilicates (hereafter: aminoclays), which are syn- Organic-inorganic materials thesized by metal salt and organotrialkoxylane at room temperature. Such organic-inorganic materials have been Nanocomposite applied in diﬀerent areas. There is also the strategy of incorporating aminoclays with another material in order Nanomaterials to expand its potential. However, the cytotoxicity of some aminoclays toward mammalian cells has to be reduced Sol-gel chemistry before application in practical ﬁelds. By evaluating the latest research papers, we take a closer look at the applications of various aminoclays in biological as well as environmental ﬁelds. 1. Introduction [10,17] and biomedicine .
