Modified high surface area nano‐boehmite particles (mB), as effective nano‐filler, and polyamide‐6, as a polymer matrix, were used for preparation of new nanocomposites. In this regards, bulk interaction method was used for such an objective and 3‐mercaptopropyl‐trimethoxysilane was selected as a modifier. In this method, the modified boehmite‐polyamide‐6 nanocomposites (mB‐PA6 NCs) were prepared under reflux condition and sonication subsequently. The prepared novel NCs were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT‐IR), X‐ray diffraction (XRD), field‐emission scanning electron microscopy (FE‐SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) techniques. Thermo‐gravimetric analysis (TGA) results showed an increase in onset of decomposition temperature for the NCs to that of pristine polyamide‐6. Furthermore, as the amount of mB was increased the onset of decomposition temperature shifts more toward higher temperatures. However, TEM images of mB‐PA6 NCs display exactly and clearly that mB particles are present in the quantum dots scale in PA6 matrix.
