ABSTRACT 

Poly(cyclohexene oxide) (PCHO)/clay nanocomposites were prepared by
in situ photoinitiated activated monomer cationic polymerization. The polymerization
of cyclohexene oxide through the interlayer galleries of the clay can provide distribution
of the clay layers in the polymer matrix homogenously and results in the formation
of PCHO/clay nanocomposites. The exfoliated structures were characterized
by X-ray diffraction spectroscopy, thermogravimetric analysis, transmission electron
microscopy, and atomic force microscopy. VVC 2009 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Polym Sci Part A:
