Preparation of Organic/Inorganic Nanocomposites with Microwave Process
Polymer/layered silicate nanocomposities were prepared by in situ polymerization with microwave process. The influence of the amount of clay on the structure and thermal properties for the synthesized nanocomposites were characterized by means of X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA). It was found that the structure of nanocomposites, an intercalated/exfoliated structure, depended on the clay content.
