Unformatted text preview: (b) Intercalated: this state is formed by the insertion of rubber chains between the nanoclay layers, the ordered structure of layers is retained. . (c) Exfoliated: In this state, individual layers of the nanoclay are completely delaminated and dispersed in the rubber matrix. The ordered structure of the layered nanoclay is lost.
