The samples must be very thin, on the order of 100 nm, to allow the electron beam to pass through. The preparation of very thin samples is normally conducted using a microtome. The samples to be microtomed are normally mounted in an epoxy resin to facilitate the slicing of the sample. For high-modulus polymers, this slicing can be done at room temperature. Many lowmodulus and elastomeric samples require cryogenic cooling in order to obtain samples suitable for imaging in the TEM. 5 TEM of a poor clay–polymer composite with a large tactoid in which the individual d-spacing can be measured.

The surface area of montmorillonite (a clay utilized in many polymer–clay nanocomposite studies) is in excess of 750 m2/g . At this surface area, a large polymer molecule can associate exclusively on one montmorillonite particle. The nature of the polymer–clay interfacial association can be a very significant variable that relates to the mechanical properties of these composites. The complexity of the polymer–clay nanocomposite presents significant challenges in deconvoluting the variables that relate to structure– property relationships as a function of Young’s modulus and the determination of Poisson’s ratio.
