The dynamics of water in two synthetic saponite clays (treated by microwave) with different interlayer spacing has been studied using the quasielastic neutron scattering technique. A model in which the molecules undergo random jump diffusion describes the dynamics of water in both clays. The dynamics of water confined in both saponite clays considered here is found to be hindered in comparison to the bulk phase. It is found that diffusivity increases for samples having higher interlayer spacing.
