Book Description :

Nanocomposites with Carbon-based nanofillers (e.g., carbon nanotubes, graphene sheets and nanoribbons etc.) form a class of extremely promising materials for thermal applications. In addition to exceptional material properties, the thermal conductivity of the carbon-based nanofillers can be higher than any other known material, suggesting the possibility to engineer nanocomposites that are both lightweight and durable, and have unique thermal properties. This potential is hindered by thermal boundary resistance (TBR) to heat transfer at the interface between nanoinclusions and the matrix, and by the difficulty to control the dispersion pattern and the orientation of the nanoinclusions. Thermal Behaviour and Applications of Carbon-Based Nanomaterials: Theory, Methods and Applications explores heat transfer in nanocomposites, discusses techniques predicting and modeling the thermal behavior of carbon nanocomposites at different scales, and methods for engineering applications of nanofluidics and heat transfer. The chapters combine theoretical explanation, experimental methods and computational analysis to show how carbon-based nanomaterials are being used to optimise heat transfer. The applications-focused emphasis of this book makes it a valuable resource for materials scientists and engineers who want to learn more about nanoscale heat transfer. Offers an informed overview of how carbon nanomaterials are currently used for nanoscale heat transfer Discusses the major applications of carbon nanomaterials for heat transfer in a variety of industry sectors Details the major computational methods for the analysis of the thermal properties of carbon nanomaterials

Book Description :

Composites with polymer matrices and nano-sized exfoliated fillers demonstrate significant enhancement in mechanical and functional properties over those of monolithic polymers at extremely low filler loadings. From the variety of nano-fillers utilised by researchers to develop commercially viable nanocomposites, carbon based nano-fillers are prominently used to render electrical conductivity in addition to mechanical strength. Amongst these, graphene oxide (GO) is electrically insulating contrary to the rest of carbon-based fillers, and hence not much investigated as a nano-filler so far. However, chemical and/or thermal reduction of GO can restore the electrical conductivity. This transitional behaviour makes GO a promising nano-filler for electronic applications. Besides, the thermal stability and mechanical strength of GO are comparable to graphene at temperate conditions. This research work is aimed at preparation of multifunctional polymer-GO nanocomposite thin films. The multi-layered films are constructed as a sandwich of plain polymer facing sheets supporting an electrospun polymer-GO nano-fibre core. The material formulation is divided into two parts, viz., development of a simple and less hazardous process for synthesizing conductive GO nano-fillers, and manufacturing of polymer-GO nano-fibre mats with electrospinning. The characterisation techniques employed to assess the structure and morphology of synthesized GO include X-ray diffractometry, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy and the results confirm the effectiveness of the developed GO synthesis process. Additionally, the partial chemical reduction lead to a severe drop in electrical resistivity of GO sheets, and the observed average resistivity values are amongst the lowest reported till date. An orthogonal experimental design as per Taguchi method was devised to analyse the process parameter effects on the average resistivity value of GO sheets. Poly(methyl methacrylate) was selected as the polymer matrix for this work and plymer-GO nano-fibre mats were generated with electrospinning under controlled environmental conditions, to produce well-dispersed nano-fibres with uniform diameter. Vacuum forming was used to manufacture the sandwich films with electrospun cores. Additionally, electrically conducting, monolayer polymer-GO nanocomposite films were prepared through solution casting. The nanocomposite sandwich films demonstrate very high gas barrier with permeation values of nearly zero, measured during oxygen permeation testing. Modelling of gas barrier property is accomplished with analytical and finite element based numerical modelling tools. The observed high gas barrier is attributed to multi-layered structure, fibrous core and presence of impermeable GO fillers in the nano-fibres. Based on the experimental results, these films are found highly suitable for applications in food and beverage packaging and chemical processing plants. Analytical modelling of electromagnetic interference shielding capability of the solution cast polymer-GO films was conducted. The shielding effectiveness values predicted by the models are positive, but significantly lower than the commercial requirements. However, the theoretical cases for nanocomposite films with moderate improvement in electrical conductivity and increased film thickness yield commercially required EMI SE values, thus confirming the potential of these films as EMI shields This thesis thus reports a comprehensive work covering the synthesis of GO nano-fillers, manufacturing of sandwich thin films with electrospun polymer-GO nano-fibre cores and the experimental characterisation of the fillers and nanocomposite specimens.

Book Description :

This book presents a systemic view of nanophenomena in terms of disordered condensed media with characteristics arising at various hierarchical levels from nanoagents/nanoparticles through multiple technological interfaces to the creation of micro- or mesostructures with essential nanodimensional effects. These properties can be seen in various schemes for the functionalization of nanocarbon systems, namely, CNTs, GNRs, GNFs, carbon-based nanoaerogels, nanofoams, and so on, where nonregularities characterize surface nanointeractions and various nanointerconnects, resulting in both predictable and unpredictable effects. Beginning with nanosensing and finishing with other forms of functionalized nanomaterials, these effects will define the prospective qualities of future consumer nanoproducts and nanodevices. This book covers all aspects of nonregular nanosystems arising from the fundamental properties of disordered nanosized media, from electronic structure, surface nanophysics, and allotropic forms of carbon such as graphene and fullerenes including defect characterization, to spintronics and 3D device principles. Nonregular Nanosystems will be of interest to students and specialists in various fields of nanotechnology and nanoscience, experts on surface nanophysics and nanochemistry, as well as managers dealing with marketing of nanoproducts and consumer behavior research.
