1-10\% starch/clay bionanocomposites with shape memory properties were obtained by melt processing. X-ray diffraction (XRD) and TEM evidenced the presence of a major fraction of clay tactoids, consisting of 4-5 stacked crystalline layers, with a thickness of 6.8 nm. A significant orientation of the nanopartides induced by extrusion was also observed. Tensile tests performed above the glass transition of the materials showed that the presence of clay nanoparticles leads to higher elastic modulus and maximum stress, without significant loss in elongation at break which typically reached 100\%. Samples submitted to a 50\% elongation and cooled below the glass transition showed shape memory behavior. Like unreinforced starch, the bionanocomposites showed complete shape recovery in unconstrained conditions. In mechanically constrained conditions, the maximum recovered stress was significantly improved for the bionanocomposites compared to unreinforced starch, opening promising perspectives for the design of sensors and actuators.
