Polymer/layered silicate nanocomposites belong to one of the most promising group of materials of the past few decades and most probably for the near future. Following the pioneering works of Toyota Research Group in the 1980s, the interest on these materials increased rapidly and research is now being carried out world wide, using all kinds of polymers as base material.
