Abstract

PolyN-isopropylacrylamide PNIPAM was synthesized in the presence of AIBN as radical initiator. The structure of polymer was elucidated using IR,

H NMR, and

C NMR spectroscopies and TGA thermogram. Exfoliated nanocomposite based on thermosensitive polymer PNIPAM was prepared utilizing montmorillonite MMT by solution blending. Its dispersion characteristics were investigated using SEM, X-ray diffraction, and particle size analysis. XRD showed exfoliation of MMT in polymer matrix above lower critical solution temperature LCST. SEM indicated that polymer chains were dispersed among the layers of MMT. Particle size analysis showed two distinctive regions at 311 31-5% and 1160 68-5% nm.
