Polyamide-6/Organointercalated zirconium phosphate nanocomposites (PA-6/ZrPOct) were prepared by melt extrusion. The synthesized lamellar ZrP was expanded with octadecylamine at different amine:phosphate ratio and its influence on thermal and thermo-mechanical, crystallographic and molecular mobility characteristics of the nanocomposites were evaluated by thermogravimetry (TG), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), dynamic-mechanical analysis (DMA), wide-angle X-ray diffraction (WAXD) and proton low field nuclear magnetic resonance (1H LFNMR). It was observed a slight decrease for degradation temperatures T onset and T max for all nanocomposites. By DSC, PA-6 alpha-gamma phase transformation was detected. Also, PA-6 melting temperature and crystallinity degree were changed as function of the ratio amine:phosphate. Similar behavior was noticed for glass transition temperature (T g) and moduli (storage, E′, and loss, E″) in dynamic-mechanical evaluation. WAXD diffraction angles of ZrPOct shifted to lower values due to the effect of the amine:phosphate ratio. SEM image showed that filler structure with nanometer dimension was got. Several evidences deduced that nanocomposites with different degree of intercalation and/or exfoliation could have been achieved.
