Fe-pillared bentonite clay-based nanoadsorbent was synthesized by the thermal aging technique. The characteristics of the nanocomposite were detected by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectra (FTIR), thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA), scanning electron microscope (SEM), electron dispersive X-ray spectrometer (EDX), reflectance spectrophotometer (RS), and electromagnetic transition instrument (ETI). The TGA result demonstrated that the Fe particles generated on the clay surface can significantly improve the thermal stability of clay particles. The SEM and EDX results showed the presence of chemical elements of Fe, Al, and Si on the surface of clay. In this research, the successful synthesis of Fe-pillared clay nanocomposite can be concluded from the FTIR spectra.
