Synthesis, Characterization and Thermal Properties of Poly(MMA)/Organoclay Nanocomposites

2020 Chemistry and Materials Research  
In this study, the synthesis, characterization, and thermal properties of poly(methyl methacrylate) (MMA) polymer/clay based nanocomposites were investigated by in situ polymerization. At the characterizations of nanomaterials FTIR, XRD, and thermal techniques were used. It was determined from XRD and TGA measurements that the morphology of nanocomposites was exfoliated when the clay content in the polymer matrix was kept at 3% and 5%. From thermal analysis, a positive correlation was observed
