Abstract: Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF)-organoclay nanocomposites were prepared by melt-extrusion using polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) as an interfacial agent. These nanocomposite materials were analysed with respect to their morphological and rheological properties. The nanophase morphology development and nanophase dispersion were studied using TEM. A fine dispersion of partially to nearly fully exfoliated silicate layers in miscible PVDF/PMMA blend matrices was observed when organophilic montmorillonite was used. Increasing the amount of PMMA in the PVDF/PMMA blend leads to high degree of exfoliation.
