2008a) attributed higher ranges of spatial dependence to these minerals, because crystallographically, they are more homogeneous.
38), (39) have proposed a toughening mechanism for toughened semicrystalline polymers in which the rubber/matrix interface nucleates crystallization of matrix to produce crystallographically oriented material in the near interface region.
a) Intercalated nanocomposite: The insertion of a polymer matrix into the layered silicate structure occurs in a crystallographically regular fashion, regardless of the clay-to-polymer ratio.
