Abstract

Poly (lactic acid)/clay nanocomposites were prepared by solution-casting and melt-blending techniques, and their morphologies and mechanical properties were studied. X-ray diffractograms revealed an intercalated-exfoliated mixed structure for the nanocomposites obtained by both techniques. TEM images show a good organoclay dispersion degree. The mechanical properties of nanocomposites from the melt-blending technique were superior to those obtained by solution-casting method. In both cases, the highest elongation at break and Young’s modulus were achieved at5wt%octadecylamine-montmorillonite (ODA-MMT) content.
