Preparation of polymer-clay nanocomposites via dispersion polymerization using tailor-made polymeric surface modifiers
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2011-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Fully exfoliated polystyrene-clay nanocomposites were prepared via free radical polymerization in dispersion polymerization, in a mixture of ethanol and water. Sodium montomorillonite clay (MMT) was ...
The scaling up of highly filled polymer clay nanocomposites with regard to clay loading
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2016-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Water-based polymer clay nanocomposites (PCN) based on styrene-co-butyl acrylate copolymers (PSBA/MMT) were prepared with clay loadings of up to 50 wt.%. The resultant materials showed instability with ...
