Cover: Compatibilizing effect of itaconic acid grafted polypropylene on the degree of dispersion of clays such as montmorillonite and hectorite in polypropylene/clay nanocomposites was studied. The figure depicts possible interaction of the clay surface with the polar groups of the grafted polypropylene. The morphology of the resulting nanocomposite is also shown.
