The curing kinetics of nanocomposites based on phenolic resol cured with triethylamine (TEA) containing different amounts of organic montmorillonite was analyzed by differential scanning calorimetry. Kissinger-Akahira-Sunose (KAS) model-free kinetics has been applied to correlate the dynamic cure behaviour in the presence of modified montmorillonite. The effect in the curing of the use of different clay modifiers has also been studied. A commercial clay with hydroxyl groups (Cloisite 30B) and a customized montmorillonite (PheMMT) whose reactive groups induce condensation reactions with the resol matrix have been used. Strong dependency of activation energy on apparent conversion has been observed for all compounds.
