Self-assembly behavior in PS/montmorillonite nanocomposite
Chen, GM; Ma, YM; Qi, ZN
AbstractA shear-induced ordered structure in an exfoliated polystyrene (PS)/clay nanocomposite is reported. Self-assembly behavior was reported for the first time of a shear-induced ordered structure in the nanocomposite. The self-assembly behavior was measured by X-ray diffraction(XRD) patterns, transmission electron microscopy(TEM), and FTIR dichroism technique; Compared with the broad amorphous peaks of the PS, a series of sharp XRD peaks were observed for the exturded PS/clay nanocomposite pellet sample, showing that an ordered sructure occurred under shear flow. The intensities of the four sharp)(RD peaks of the ordered sructure decreased significantly with temperature. However, at 95 degreesC, the XRD peaks increased significantly , the FTIR dichroism showing that and the phenyl ring of PS changed its orientation from parallel to perpendicular to the monmorillonite primary particles, whereas no obvious orientation of the alkyl chain of PS could be found. At 110 degreesC, a disordered structure occurred for the phenyl ring. TEM images confirmed directly that the origin of the ordered structure was mainly due to the planar orientation of the primary particles of silicate layers as well as local ordered microsructure of the primary particles,. induced by shear flow. Basd on these investigations, a possible mechanism was deduced for the formation of the ordered strucure induced by shear flow in the exfoliated PS/clay nanocomposite.
