Abstract: High charge synthetic Na-Mica-2 has been synthesized by the NaCl melt method. The Na+ cations in the interlayer space of the clay have been exchanged with Eu3+ ions by a cation exchange reaction. The correct incorporation of Eu3+ and further characterization of its coordination environment and location within the clay, as well as its optical properties, have been studied by means of x-ray diffraction, x-ray absorption (XANES and EXAFS), thermogravimetry and luminescence. Different structural scenarios for the incorporation of europium have been proposed and evaluated.
