Paper Title:
PVA/Kaolinite Nanocomposite Hydrogels: Preparation Method and Characterization
  Abstract

In this work, nanocomposite hydrogels on the basis of Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) and kaolinite nanoclay were prepared by the repeatedly freezing-thawing method. The structure and morphology of nanocomposite hydrogels were studied by the XRD, TEM and SEM techniques. The function of nanoclay in the nanocomposite hydrogels was investigated using the FTIR and DSC tests. It was found that the prepared nanocomposite hydrogels have the intercalated morphology with good dispersion of nanoclay layers in hydrogel matrix. DSC results showed some shifting in the glass transition temperature of PVA hydrogel in presence of nanoclay. The FTIR results also showed that some interactions have been developed between the hydroxyl groups of PVA chains and kaolinite layers in nanocomposite hydrogels.
