The polypropylene nanoclay composite was investigated in this study.The understanding of polypropylene nanoclay is of interest because it allows us to monitor the mechanical properties developed or changes as a result of loadings. The propylene characteristics were carried out in term of tensile strength, flextural modulus , elongation at break and impact strength . Further investigation on the behaviour of the composite were also carried out using the thermogrametric and the X-Ray diffraction for crystallography. In order to understand the relation between properties and surface morphology at the nanoscale the Atomic Force Measurement were made. The rsults were discussed in term of properties and the structures that exist.
