Abstract

Polymer-layered silicate nanocomposites have generated great interest due to their improved thermal, mechanical and gas barrier properties compared to conventional composites or neat polymers. Since the surface of most polymers is usually hydrophobic and layered silicate nanoparticles are completely hydrophilic, interactions between them are not favourable. Thus, the first step in the direction of a nanocomposite synthesis i
