The present invention provide methods for producing a low moisture organophyllosilicate composition using monomers, oligomers, or polymers to displace water associated with the organophyllosilicates in an aqueous organophyllosilicate slurry or filter cake. The invention additionally provides methods for producing organophyllosilicate nanocomposites from the concentrated organophyllosilicate compositions by dispersing the compositions in a polymer matrix.
