The final state of the polymer/clay system must represent a thermodynamic equilibrium state. Otherwise, if it is not an equilibrium state, any change during a possible transition to an equilibrium or more probable state should not have a significant negative influence on the performance of the material during application in the field. In both intercalated and exfoliated nanocomposites, there must be sufficient adhesive or other interaction forces between the clay or organoclay and the matrix, so that the product can withstand the stresses and strains encountered under application conditions.

While the matrix and/or the clay might undergo some changes during the nanocomposite synthesis process, these changes must not compromise the integrity of the nanocomposites. Various chemical and physical changes normally occur during nanocomposite synthesis (e. ). The above factors should be taken into consideration in nanocomposite synthesis and in product and process design, while taking into account the relevant fundamental principles of physics, chemistry, thermodynamics, kinetics, and mechanics.
