Review on the preparation and properties of clay-based nanocomposites with covalently-bound polymer architecture
College of Science
Philippine Journal of Science
The concept of tethering polymer chains on a solid substrate has attracted considerable attention from both practical and theoretical points of view. Materials with covalently bound polymer architecture are often referred to as polymer brushes. Polymer brushes, typically prepared either through “grafting to” or “grafting from” approaches, have interesting mechanical and chemical properties and represent a class of materials that can provide a wide range of applications that include stabilization of colloids, adhesion, and polymer coatings. In this review, two general methods of preparing polymer brush nanocomposites were discussed leading to covalently end-tethered polymer architecture and the resulting properties exhibited by these hybrid materials. © 2019, Department of Science and Technology.
