Highlights•Lubrication performance of mica is improved by an intercalated alkyl ammonium cation.•The improved lubricity is due to the promotion of the mica's cleavability.•The absorption wavenumbers for in-plane Si–O bonds were higher as sliding progressed.•The IR shift is caused by mica's cleavage.
