Abstract

The applications of chain end-functionalized polypropylene (PP) in polyolefin/clay nanocomposites were discussed. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) was used to examine the degree of exfoliated structure. The side chain-functionalized or block copolymer PP formed multiple contacts with each of the clay surfaces. The result show that the resulting contacts promoted the intercalated structures by bridging the consecutive clay platelets.
