Background: Polybutylene succinate (PBS) is a type of biodegradable polymers that have gained considerable
attention among scholars when extreme rivalry is increasing rapidly in around the world for finding alternatives to
petroleum-based polymeric materials.
Methods: A modified clay was used in preparing nanocomposites for the PBS / corn starch mixture. Nanocomposites were
prepared by 0.5–5 percent of HDA-MMT being integrated.An x-ray diffraction technique (XRD) was employed to
characterize the modifier’s interactionin the clay layer.
Results: In order to the nanocomposites to be synthesized, a solution was used to cast off the modified clay and (PBS)/ corn
starch) blend. The nanocomposites production was verified by XRD and transmission electron microscopy.
Conclusion: Modified clay nanocomposites (PBS / Corn starch) demonstrate higher thermal stability and substantial
improvement in contrast to PBS / Corn starch blend.
