Abstract: Role of nanoclay as additives in Atom transfer Radical Polymerization was observed as it leads to a remarkable increase in polymerization rate without losing control. Two parameters, viz., the dispersion time of clay in monomer prior to polymerization and extent of clay loading are found to have a positive effect on the kinetics of polymerization.

Keywords: Atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP), N-(-n-octyl)-2-pyridinemethanimine, Cloisite 30B Gel permeation chromatography (GPC)
