Abstract The recognition that polymer/clay nanocomposites impart improved barrier properties related to gas transport has prompted much discussion and research into the mechanism of this improvement. The plate like morphology of the clays was the attribute first seized upon as the dominant factor in improving barrier properties. A simple two dimensional model was proposed in which the clay plates acted as barriers to the gas diffusion thus making the effective path length longer. This model has… CONTINUE READING
