Prof. Emmanuel P. Giannelis Polymer Layered Silicate Nanocomposites Advanced Materials 8
Polymer nanocomposites with layered silicates as the inorganic (reinforcement) phase exhibit properties that are of interest for commercial applications. In particular, it is shown that nanocomposites produced by polymer melt intercalation, a new, versatile and environmentally benign synthetic approach, exhibit significantly improved stiffness, strength and thermal properties compared to their more conventional counterparts. Miscibility issues and the kinetics of polymer intercalation are also considered.
