Crystallization and Polymorphic Behavior of Nylon-Clay Nanocomposites

Abstract

Nylons are very successful semicrystalline polymers and are commercially exploited extensively. The incorporation of nano-sized layered silicates into nylons has a significant influence on the crystallization behavior, polymorphism, and hence on the properties of the polymers. In this chapter, we highlight the preparation of nylon nanocomposites by various methods and the effect of layered silicates on the crystallization, crystallization kinetics, crystal structure, and polymorphic transitions in nylon–clay nanocomposites.
