The development of quantitative methods for the determination of intercalation and exfoliation of montmorillonite in a polymer-matrix material

Methods for the quantitative determination of intercalation and exfoliation extent of montmorillonite (MMT) in polymer-matrix composites have been proposed. The methods are based on the ratio of integral intensities of basal and nonbasal MMT peaks obtained using powder X-ray diffraction for materials selected at different stages of the process of nanocomposite production.
