Book Description :

This book covers smart polymer nanocomposites with perspectives for application in energy harvesting, as self-healing materials, or shape memory materials. The book is application-oriented and describes different types of polymer nanocomposites, such as elastomeric composites, thermoplastic composites, or conductive polymer composites. It outlines their potential for applications, which would meet some of the most important challenges nowadays: for harvesting energy, as materials with the capacity to self-heal, or as materials memorizing a given shape.The book brings together these different applications for the first time in one single platform. Chapters are ordered both by the type of composites and by the target applications. Readers will thus find a good overview, facilitating a comparison of the different smart materials and their applications. The book will appeal to scientists in the fields of chemistry, material science and engineering, but also to technologists and physicists, from graduate student level to researcher and professional.

Book Description :

Carbon Nanotubes (CNT) have unique properties that can be used to form smart materials. This is a recent area of research, and little work has been done beyond the invention of buckypaper electrochemical actuators. The objective of this dissertation is to investigate the piezoresistive and electrochemical properties of Single Wall Carbon Nanotubes (SWNT), Multi-Wall Carbon Nanotubes (MWNT) and nanotube polymer composite materials. Based on these properties, a strain sensor, a corrosion sensor, a power transducer, and an actuator were developed in this dissertation. These new nanotube-based smart materials have unique advantages and also limitations when compared to existing smart materials. One nice advantage is the multi-functionality of the material. This is illustrated by a sensor developed in this study that simultaneously uses both the piezoresistivity and electrochemical impedance properties of carbon nanotubes for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) applications. In addition, a biomimetic Artificial Neural System (ANS) was proposed that can cover large areas and monitor the health of a structure in real time, much like the neural system in the human body. The nanotube based sensor system can be easily installed on large structures using a spray-on technique, making the sensor low cost and practical. The characteristics of the sensors developed were modeled and verified by experiments. Also, Carbon Nanofibers (CNF), which are similar to nanotubes, were investigated for use as a low cost sensor material in the study. Power generation using nanotubes and nanofibers in aqueous and dry environments was also investigated. The aim was to provide autonomous power for a SHM sensor system. The voltage output of the nanotube power cell was determined for a few different ionic liquids and polymers. An interesting mechanism of power generation for the dry CNT material was found. An electrostatically charged material reciprocating perpendicular to the nanotube film produced a measurable voltage signal and a small power output. This indicates that power harvesting from electromagnetic fields may be possible using a dry nanocomposite structural material. The dry power harvesting material could provide a significant advantage in engineering applications where a direct power source is not available, but where an electromagnetic field is. The electrochemical actuation property of carbon nanotubes and nanofibers was also studied. In particular, the actuation property of MWNT and CNF was demonstrated. These fibers have a cost advantage compared to SWNT in structural applications. Initial strain modeling of the actuator was done and a constitutive law to model the actuator was proposed for further study. A multi-functional hybrid transducer was also suggested as an idea for further study with structural health monitoring applications in mind. The limitations of nanotube smart materials center on the processing of the nanocomposite to bring the great properties of nanotubes to the macroscale. Dispersing the nanotubes in the polymer, aligning the nanotubes, providing ion exchange, and achieving a strong bond between the nanotube and the polymer are significant obstacles that presently limit the performance of nanostructured materials. The polymer nanocomposite material developed using MWNT was found to reduce the problems of bundling and slipping observed in SWNT actuators. An overall exciting outcome of this dissertation is that with continuing development and improvement of the processing of nanotube-based materials, a new class of smart structural composite materials is anticipated that can be broadly used in the future. Applications of these materials may range from nanomedicine to space vehicles. Miniature robots, advanced lightweight airfoil structures with built-in controls, wireless motors with high energy density, active biomedical implants, surgical tools, active catheters, and other applications may become practical based on nanoscale smart materials.

Book Description :

Polymer-based smart materials have become attractive in recent years due to the fact that polymers are flexible and provide many advantages compared to inorganic smart materials: they are low cost, they are easy to process, and they exhibit good performance at nano- and microscale levels. This volume focuses on a different class of polymers that are used as smart materials in the areas of biotechnology, medicine, and engineering. The volume aims to answer these questions: How do we distinguish ‘smart materials’? and How do they work? The chapters lay the groundwork for assimilation and exploitation of this technological advancement. Four of the key aspects of the approach that the authors have developed throughout this book are highlighted, namely the multidisciplinary exchange of knowledge, exploration of the relationships between multiple scales and their different behaviors, understanding that material properties are dictated at the smallest scale, and, therefore, the recognition that macroscale behavior can be controlled by nanoscale design.

Book Description :

Supercapacitors have drawn intensive attention owing to their virtues of high power density, long cycle life, short charging time and safe operation for promising applications to resolve problems of limited global energy supply and environmental problems. Supercapacitors are designed to bridge the gap between batteries and capacitors, to form fast charging energy-storage devices of intermediate specific energy. The supercapacitor is an important device in the energy storage and conversion systems, and is used in different applications such as in electric vehicles, uninterruptible power supplies, memory protection of computer electronics and cellular devices.This book serves as a guide in understanding the basics of conducting polymer technology, nanostructurisation of conducting polymers and their composites emerging as a new field of research and development, directed to the creation of new smart materials, especially for supercapacitors.The concepts of supercapacitors are well explained in simple and concise form to avoid the confusion of students and academic professionals. The book has chemical engineering orientation and therefore, professionals from the polymer science field may find this book most suitable for their advanced and applied field of research. It will provide them an opportunity to learn about conducting polymers and nanocomposites, and their production and processing technology for supercapacitors. Although the attention is mainly focused on preparation of conducting polymer based binary and ternary nanocomposites and their electrochemical performances for supercapacitor application, this book will be a valuable reference for scientists, engineers, students and general readers who are interested in the investigation and exploitation of the fascinating new class of conducting polymer nanocomposites.
