Abstract:

Article Preview

The glass transition temperature (Tg) of Fluoro-Poly(ether-imide) and Fluoro-Poly(either-Imide)/MMY clay Nanocomposites has been investigated by both experiments and Monte Carlo Simulation. It was observed that the (Tg) values of the nanocomposites increases with increase in clay contents.
