Abstract:

This chapter is an extensive overview of clay-containing nanocomposites of poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET). The various techniques used to prepare clay-based PET nanocomposites, their structural and morphological characterization, their improved mechanical and material properties, their melt-state rheological and crystallization behavior, and, finally, current applications and future prospects of PET-based nanocomposite ...
