Abstract: Porous PVA/MMT nanocomposites, which included a great deal of macroporous, mesoporous and a few micorporous were fabricated by directional freezing and freeze-drying. X-ray diffraction (XRD), Scan Electric Microscope (SEM), Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy, and Thermo gravimetric-differential scanning calorimeter analysis (TG-DSC) were used characterize the samples. Results showed that the morphology and the interactions between MMT and PVA of the obtained porous nanocomposites were influenced by nanoparticle size, colloid concentration , aging time etc.O-H bond in PVA and Si-O bond in MMT, "acetate" in PVA and O-H bond in particle flat of MMT which occurred coupling constituted hydrogen bonding which enhanced the driving power to help PVA molecules insert into interlayer spaces of MMT.
