AbstractPolyethylene terephthalate (PET) nanocomposites were prepared via melt compounding of PET using a twin screw extruder. Water was fed to the extruder to assist in intercalation/exfoliation. The ratio between the water and PET feed rates was varied and Cloisite Na +, Cloisite 30B and Nanomer I.238E were used. Wide angle x-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and rheometry were used to characterize the PET nanocomposites.
