high-density polyethylene matrix

The Use of Solid State NMR to Characterize High Density Polyethylene/Organoclay Nanocomposites

Recently the development of new materials, in special polymeric nanocomposites, formed by polymer and layered silicates, have gained attention. In this work nanocomposites based on high-density polyethylene matrix (HDPE) and organically modified clay were prepared by melt processing and characterized by the determination of proton spin-lattice relaxation time through solid state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy.
