  • Publication number: 20150031811
    Abstract: The polymer-clay nano composite material is a nanocomposite formed from poly(styrene-co-ethyl methacrylate) copolymer and organo-modified clay by in situ polymerization. Nanoparticles of a montmorillonite clay that has been modified with a quaternary ammonium salt are dispersed into a mixture of styrene and ethyl methacrylate monomers to form a mixture, which then undergoes bulk radical polymerization. The poly(styrene-co-ethyl methacrylate) copolymer preferably has a styrene to ethyl methacrylate ratio of about 1:1. Preferably, the organically modified montmorillonite clay forms between 1.0 wt % and 5.0 wt % of the mixture. A free radical initiator, such as benzoyl peroxide, is used to initiate polymerization. The clay nano-filler provides the nanocomposite with improved thermal stability.

  • Publication number: 20140350153
    Abstract: In general the present disclosure relates to Nylon 6/montmorillonite clay nanocomposites with enhanced mechanical properties that have been prepared primarily by solution compounding. A major challenge in producing the Nylon 6/montmorillonite clay nanocomposites is associated with the exfoliation and dispersion of the clay particles within the polymer matrix. This disclosure presents compositions and methods for obtaining highly or fully exfoliated nylon 6/montmorillonite nanocomposites not only for organically modified clays with known compatibility with nylon 6 (Cloisite 30B), but also for clays with low/no compatibility with nylon 6 (Cloisite 15A and Na—MMT) through solution compounding.
