dc.description.abstractThe shear orientation of three polymer-clay gels has been investigated by means of small angle neutron scattering (SANS). The gels have the same polymer and clay concentrations but different polymer molecular weight. The polymer B adsorbed to the clay platelets. While long polymer chains can interconnect several platelets shorter polymer chains cannot. Although the polymer concentration is above c* the polymer chain length and cross linking between clay platelets strongly influence their shear orientation which leads to anisotropy in SANS. Our data suggest that the flow is strong enough to enhance and maintain a continuous increase in the shear orientation of the polymer clay gels only when the polymer chains are long enough to interconnect or strongly entangle between platelets. © 2005 Materials Research Society.en
