Abstract

Multifunctional polymer blend nanocomposites consisting EPDM elastomer as a matrix polymer, bioengineering polyesters (PLA and PCL), PP-g-MA compatibilizer and covalently encapsulated colloidal alternating reactive copolymer-g--aminopropyl trimethoxysilane-silica nanoparticles as reactive compatibilizer nanofillers, and organoclay (reactive ODA-MMT and complexable DMDA-MMT) nanofillers were fabricated in melt by a one-step reactive extrusion nanotechnology. The effects of bioengineering polyesters and their molecular mass, origin of organology, and reactive PP-g-MA compatibilizer were evaluated. Unique nanostructures, lower particle sizes and crystallinity, SEM-TEM morphologies, higher thermal behaviors, good mechanical and rheological properties of thermoplastic multifunctional nanocomposites were evaluated.
