The nylon 6-clay hybrid (NCH) which we developed is a molecular composite in which sheet silicates are dispersed at the molecular level. This composite has a unique structure in which many linear polymer chains (nylon 6) are bonded to the two-dimensional clay layer. Due to interest in the dimension control of polymerization, we synthesized star-shaped nylon 6 in which polymerization starts from the zero dimension. ε-Caprolactam was polymerized using initiators which have three or four carboxylic groups in aromatic compounds. Thus, the nylon 6 products have three or four arms, respectively. Tensile strength and modulus values of these nylons are independent of the number of arms, and are very similar to those of commercial nylon 6. As the number of polymer chain arms increased, the melt viscosity decreased. The entanglement effect decreases as the length of each polymer chain is shortened. The viscosity of four-armed nylon 6 is only one-tenth of that of the linear one.

In this report, we added hexamethylene diamine (HMDA) to nylon 6-clay hybrid (NCH), in which some silicate layers were laminated and these laminated layers were dispersed in the nylon 6 matrix. The diamine-modified NCH had sufficient elongation and impact strength. However, the strength and modulus slightly decreased. The silicate layers were pillared by diammonium ion of the diamine in the diamine-modified NCH. It is considered that the decrease of mechanical properties results in a lowering of the surface area between the silicate layers and nylon 6.
