Abstract Polymer layered silicate nanocomposites have been studied for many years and due to their distinguished properties and applications, it is still the subject of many research programs. There are different methods of preparation, with the melt intercalation method as the mostly used method. Due to the thermal destructive effects of melt mixing on the polymer chains there are currently efforts to develop some new methods of preparation. A solvent/non-solvent method has been developed in this study for the preparation of ABS/clay nanocomposites. ABS nanocomposite is precipitated after addition of ethanol (non-solvent) containing organic modified montmorillonite from a THF solution while it is stirring. A kind of mixing system known as homogenizer has been used in this work. The final product has been determined having an intercalated structure with a uniform interlayer spacing of the silicate layers. The ABS nanocomposites prepared in this work has been studied by X-ray diffraction, FTIR, transmission electron microscope and thermogravimetric analysis. The effect of using homogenizer on the characteristics of the nanocomposites also has been investigated and discussed in several parts of the present work.
