Book Description :

There is a major lack of fundamental knowledge and understanding on the interaction between a filler and the polymer matrix. When it comes to nanoscale fillers, such as layered silicates, carbon nanotubes, graphene or cellulose nanofibers it is even more important to know accurate structure-property relationships as well as identifying the parameters influencing material behavior. The reason for the lack of knowledge on how to process nanocomposites and why there are so few applications is that several scientific fields are affected and a joint effort of those scientific communities involved is necessary – starting from the filler manufacturing or pre-processing over polymer chemistry to the polymer processing. In Polymer Nanoclay Composites, all involved scientific areas are viewed together for the first time, providing an all-embracing coverage of all stages of polymer clay nanocomposites processing from lab-scale to industrial scale – stages from the raw material over manufacturing of polymer clay nanocomposites to characterization and the final products. Readers will gain insight in the physical/chemical pre-processing of layered silicates and their incorporation into a polymer matrix using sophisticated technologies (such as advanced compounding) as well as in real-time quality control of the nanocomposite production and future prospects. The book also describes nanotoxicological and nanosafety aspects. Covers the whole processing route with all aspects of the nanocomposites industry with particular focus on the processing of polymer clay nanocomposites Includes quality control and nanosafety Multidisciplinary approach from an industrial perspective

Book Description :

The polymer-clay nanocomposites, when applied as coating materials, are expected to improve the barrier properties without sacrificing mechanical and thermal properties, and thus solve one of the most challenging problems existing in current food and beverage packaging using paper barrier coating. Furthermore, a stable polymer composite suspension in an aqueous form has many other advantages such as better environmental concern, easier manipulation and better energy saving. However, the research in this area is quite limited in the literature. In this research, a stable water-based suspension of polymer-encapsulated nanoclay composite has been successfully synthesized. The polymer nanocomposites, which encapsulate the exfoliated and well-dispersed nanoclay inside the polymer matrix, can dramatically improve almost all the aspects of mechanical properties and thermal stability in comparison with that of pure polystyrene (PS) and polystyrene butyl acrylate (PSBA) films. The particle size of nanoclay and the surface modification method are two important factors for emulsion stability, the encapsulation and intercalation (or exfoliated) degree of nanoclay. Furthermore, the impact of nanoclay on miniemulsion kinetics has been extensively investigated and the results show the hindrance of nanoclay on styrene miniemulsion polymerization kinetics.

Book Description :

In this chapter, we report the findings of experimental investigations conducted on durability of glass fiber-reinforced polymer (GFRP) composites with and without the addition of montmorillonite nanoclay. First, neat and nanoclay-added epoxy systems were characterized to evaluate the extent of clay platelet exfoliation and dispersion of nanoclay. GFRP composite panels were then fabricated with neat/modified epoxy resin and exposed to six different conditions, i.e. hot-dry/wet, cold-dry/wet, ultraviolet radiation and alternate ultraviolet radiation–condensation. Room temperature condition samples were also used for baseline consideration. An improved dispersion of nanoclay and exfoliation of clay platelets were observed in 2wt% of epoxy samples. Weight change, discoloration and significant reduction in properties were observed in all conditioned GFRP samples. However, addition of nanoclay considerably improved the durability of GFRP samples as evident from the mechanical and micrographical results in comparison to neat samples subjected to similar conditions.

Book Description :

Abstract: Novel polymer nanocomposite foams can help in cutting down the cost of several products, equipments, energy. etc. in numerous industries which is one reason why polymeric and plastic foams industry is valued in billions of dollars today. This study involves synthesis of polymer nanocomposites prepared by reinforcing nanoclays and carbon nanofibers (CNF) in polystyrene matrix using different methods of syntheses. Two methods for the synthesis of PS/CNF composites are compared and analyzed. Also, intercalated PS/Clay composite foams arc compared with exfoliated PS/Clay composite foams. The main objective of this research study is to analyze the properties of the foamed samples of PS/CNF and PS/Clay composites. Batch foaming process is used for the preparation of the foams. In addition, this research also compares the effect of small changes in the diameter of the unfoamed sample on the properties of the foams. The effect of the length/thickness of the nanofiller particles and the number of nanofillers in the polymer matrix on the properties of the foams is evaluated. Bubble density and bubble size of different types of polymer nanocomposite foams mentioned above are determined and compared with respect to the concentration, nanofiller surface area and the number of nanoparticles in the polymer matrix. Overall, this research is significant due to the increasing demand of the lightweight, strong and multifunctional polymer nanocomposite foams. To examine the effect of concentration of nanofillers in the polymer matrix, each type of polymer nanocomposite synthesized in this thesis consists of 1%, 3% and 5% by weight of nanofiller in the rs matrix. Three samples of every type of polymer nanocomposite were foamed at all the concentrations mentioned above including three samples of pure polystyrene foam. For the foams of the PS/CNF composites synthesized using melt-blending (MB) technique, the bubble density increases and the bubble size decreases with increasing concentration of the CNF particles, total CNF surface area and number of CNF particles in the matrix. Similarly, bubble density increases and bubble size decreases with increasing CNF concentration, total CNF surface area and number of CNF particles in the matrix for the foams of PS/CNF composites synthesized using solvent casting (SC) method. Length of the CNFs in the PS/CNF SC composites is found to be 1 .75 times the length of the CNFs in the PS/CNF MB composites. Average length of a CNF in PS/CNF MB composites is determined to be around 2667 nm whereas an average length of a CNF in PS/CNF SC composites is evaluated to be around 5333 nm. The diameter of an unfoamed PS/CNF SC composite sample is measured to be around 0.093 in. whereas the diameter for an unfoamed PS/CNF MB composite sample is measured to be around 0.1015 in. The difference in the foam morphologies of the foam produced by samples with the diameters discussed above is found to be insignificant. Hence, this small a difference in the diameters of the unfoamed samples can be neglected while comparing the foam morphology of PS/CNF MB foams and PS/CNF SC foams. The CNF particles are shown to form clusters in the matrix of the PS/CNF SC composites and hence, the SEM micrographs show a varying bubble density at different places on the same SEM micrograph. PS/CNF MB composites show uniform distribution of the CNFs all around the matrix. For the PS/Clay intercalated foams, the bubble density increases and the bubble size decreases with increasing clay concentration, clay surface area and number of clay tactoids in the matrix. No specific trend was observed for the case of PS/Clay exfoliated foams as the results obtained from different trials for a specific concentration were not quite reproducible within three attempts. Reproducing results for PS/Clay exfoliated trials was tougher and hence, several trials are suggested for every concentration to detect a pattern in the data for the exfoliated PS/Clay composite foams. Amongst the other three different types of foams investigated in this study, PS/Clay intercalated foams seem to show the highest number of bubbles per cc of foam. The number of clay tactoids present in the polymer matrix in the intercalated case is an order to a couple orders of magnitude higher than number of CNF particles present in the matrices of PS/CNF foams. The bubbles nucleated were the smallest in size for these intercalated foams. Amongst the two different types of PS/CNF foams, the foams synthesized from the PS/CNF MB composites showed a higher bubble density with smaller sized bubbles in the polymer matrix as compared to the foams of PS/CNF SC composites. Due to the smaller lengths of the fibers in PS/CNF MB composites, the number of CNF particles in the polymer matrix is higher in the PS/CNF MB composites as compared PS/CNF SC composites.
