Summary

The development of polymer-nanocomposites is one of the most popular research topics in material sciences of the present time. Layered silicates such as montmorillonite, the main fraction of the clay mineral bentonite are commonly used for several purposes and are commercial available in lots of different types. The high aspect ratio of approximately 100–1000 (edge length in ratio to the thickness of the layers) of completely exfoliated layers promises a high influence on the properties of polymers filled with such materials [1, 2].
