Morphological Properties of Poly(Trimethylene Terephthalate)/Maleated Styrene-Butylene-Co-Ethylene-Styrene/Organoclay Ternary Nanocomposite
PTT/SEBS-g-MA/organoclay ternary nanocomposites were successfully prepared using melt blending. The effect of organoclay platelets on morphologies properties of PTT/SEBS-g-MA/organoclay ternary nanocomposites had been studied by XRD and SEM. The nanocomposite forms an exfoliated structure, which can be observed by XRD. The dispersed domain size (D) of SEBS-g-MA is affected by organoclay. The high aspect ratio of the organoclay platelets induced the average size of the dispersed domain to become smaller.
