Paper Title:
Dynamic Mechanical Properties and Thermal Stability of PTT/POE/OMMT Nanocomposites
  Abstract

The dynamic mechanical properties, phase morphology and thermal stability of the poly(trimethylene terephthalate)/maleinized poly(octene-ethylene)/organo-montmorillonite nanocomposites (PTT/POE/OMMT) were investigated by using the thermodynamic mechanical analyzer (DMA), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and thermal gravimetric analyzer (TGA), respectively. The results suggest that the modulus of elasticity of the PTT/POE/OMMT nanocomposite increases, and the glass transition temperature first slightly decreases and then increases with increasing OMMT content because that the TPP plays the role of plasticizer and OMMT plays the role of reinforcing agent. OMMT disperse evenly in the polymer matrix with most of the strip-like sheet morphology. The addition of the OMMT does not apparently affect the thermal stability of the PTT/POE/OMMT nanocomposite.
