Abstract

Clay minerals dispersed in a polymer matrix at the nanoscale show an improvement of many polymer properties at relatively low loadings. However a modification of hydrophilic clay surface is necessary to increase the compatibility with the hydrophobic polymer matrix. In this study the modification by organosilane of a commercial montmorillonite, containing alkylammonium cations, has been investigated. These organo-modified montmorillonites (OMMTs) have been also used to prepare Polystyrene (PS) and Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) nanocomposites by insitu polymerization and their structural and thermal properties have been examined. © 2010 American Institute of Physics.
