One of the most popular methods to producefor producing tailored materials with new and improved properties compared to the unfilled matrix is the addition of nanoparticles to polymers. Therefore, nowadaysNowadays, nanocomposites withhave improved electrical, rheological, and morphological properties that have been the focus of research [1]. Among various nanoparticles, halloysite nanotube (HNT) is an inorganic nanofiller that has recently become an area of intense research interest due to its excellent potential for various industrial applications including environmental and biomedical applications, food packaging, and construction and building materials [2-4]. This hollow nanotube, based on aluminum silicate, with a similar chemical structure to kaolinite, is readily and abundantabundantly available in nature. HNT is considered a safe, non-toxic, low-cost, environmentally friendly nanofiller with a unique hollow tubulartube, making it a potential candidate for the development of active nanocomposites with highly improved thermomechanical properties [3, 5]. The high surface area and large pore volume of HNTs (up to 184.9 m2/g and 0.353 cm3/g, respectively), and moisture constancy, obtain ability, and acidic stability and have led to effective reinforcement capability for various polymers such as epoxy resin, polypropylene, polyamide, polystyrene, natural rubber, etc [6–15]and others[6–15].
