    • Abstract

       

      The present work deals with the synthesis of specialty elastomer [fluoroelastomer and poly (styrene-𝑏-ethylene-co-butylene-𝑏-styrene (SEBS)]–clay nanocomposites and their structure–property relationship as elucidated from morphology studies by atomic force microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction and physico-mechanical properties. Due to polarity match, hydrophilic unmodified montmorillonite clay showed enhanced properties in resulting fluoroelastomer nanocomposites, while hydrophobic organo-clay showed best results in SEBS nanocomposites.
