Abstract

In this study, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) was conducted to analyze the chemical composition between epoxy matrix and nanocomposite. This experiment revealed that a chemical bonding at an interface between the matrix and nanoclay of the composites did exist. Thus, such bonding can enhance the mechanical and thermal properties of resultant polymer composites as reported in many literatures.
