Paper Title:
The Kinetic Analysis of Thermal Decomposition of PMMA/MMT Nanocomposites
  Abstract

The thermal decomposition kinetics and thermal stability of poly (methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) and PMMA/ montmorillonite (MMT) nanocomposites containing 4 wt% MMT were researched by thermogravimetry (TG). The results show that, because of the barrier behavior of exfoliated MMT layer, the temperature of thermal decomposition of PMMA/ MMT nanocomposites is improved by about 10 °C, and thermal stability is improved by about double. The apparent activation energy of decomposition, calculated by Ozawa equation, of nanocomposites is higher than that of PMMA before 27 % mass loss.
