|Abstract:||Polyamide 6 (PA6)/layered double hydroxide (LDH) nanocomposites were prepared by in situ polymerization with different amount (1, 2, 3 wt%) and type (Zn/Cr-L and Zn/Cr-P) of LDHs. The thermal and mechanical properties and water absorption capacity of PA6/LDH nanocomposites were investigated and have shown that the addition of LDHs increases the crystallinity of the polymer and improves their mechanical properties, while decreases the water absorption capacity due to a barrier effect of LDHs. A correlation between mechanical properties and water absorption capacity was observed and discussed. This study provides new strategies for tuning PA6-based nanocomposite properties, leading a progress in the development on the advanced polymer materials|
