Microwave Assisted Blending-Intercalation of Ion-Conductor Polymers into Layered Silicates

  • P. Aranda (a1), J.C. Galván (a1) and E. Ruiz-Hitzky (a1)


Organo-inorganic hybrid nancomposites derived from poly(ethylene oxide) and montmorillonite silicate are prepared by an alternative procedure to classical polymer intercalation either from solutions or by polymer melt-intercalation. XRD, FTIR, DSC, elemental microanalysis and SEM techniques are applied for structural characterization of the resulting materials. The electrical properties of these nanocomposites are studied by means of the electrical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) showing enhanced ionic conductivity compared to similar samples prepared by intercalation from solution.
