AbstractThe effect of the functionalization of polypropylene by different chemicals on the fabrication and properties of the resulting nanocomposites was studied. Different nanocomposites were prepared using different functionalized polypropylenes (PP) as coupling agents. In order to have better control of the interaction between the functional groups and the clay, samples were mixed in a Brabender plasticorder. The nanocomposite properties were then investigated. Different analysis techniques were used to characterize the dispersion and the properties of the nanocomposites including scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray diffraction analysis, dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) and a conventional flexural test.
