Polypropylene/clay nanocomposites have been prepared starting from pristine mont morillonite (MMT) and reactive compatibilizer hexadecyltrimethylammonium bromide (C16). The nanocomposite structure is evidenced by the X‐ray diffraction and high resolution electronic microscopy. Intumescent flame retardant has been added to polypropylene/clay hybrids. Their flammability behaviours have been evaluated using cone calorimetry. Synergy was observed between the nanocomposites and intumescent flame retardant.
