Abstract This work dealt with the morphology and permeability properties of polypropylene/organoclay nanocomposites prepared using an acrylic acid grafted polypropylene (PP-g-AA) as compatibilizing agent. Two PP-g-AA containing the same acrylic acid content (6 wt.%) and having different molar masses were tested. The o-MMT content was 0, 1 or 5 wt.% and the PP-g-AA/o–MMT mass ratio was 0/1, 1/1, 2/1 or 5/1. Results of wide angle X-ray scattering (WAXS) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM… CONTINUE READING
