Influence of CdS Nano Additives on the Thermal Conductivity of Poly(vinyl chloride)/CdS Nanocomposites 

CdS nanoparticles were dispersed in varying quantities into a PVC matrix and the effective thermal conductivities of the produced nanocomposites were investigated at temperatures from 25 to 110C. It was determined that the dispersion of the nanoparticles in PVC caused an increase in thermal conductivity up ...

Processing of polyurethane/carbon nanotubes composites using novel minimixer

Polytetramethylene ether glycol (PTMEG) was used to functionalize multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWNT) by grafting to produce MWNT-g-PTMEG. These functionalized nanotubes were then dispersed in thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) to form a TPU/MWNT nanocomposite. It was found that the functionalization resulted in improved dispersion of the ...

Evaluation of Morphological Effect on Thermal and  Mechanical Performance of PS/PMMA/CdS  Nanocomposite Systems

The thermal and mechanical properties of PS/PMMA immiscible polymer blends were investigated. The effects of the dispersion of CdS nanoparticles on these properties were also investigated. The dispersion of the nanoparticles was found to result in an increase in glass transition temperature, as well ...

Enhancement of physical properties of electroactive polyimide nanocomposites by addition of graphene nanosheets

The thermal imidization method was used to prepare an electroactive polyimide/graphene nanocomposite (EPGN) material membrane. It was determined that the composites that were formed had improved mechanical strength, thermal stability, and thermal conductivity, as well as an improved dielectric constant and a decreased gas ...

Influence of the degree of exfoliation on the thermal conductivity of polypropylene nanocomposites

This article investigated the effects of incorporating silica layers into polypropylene nanocomposites. The influence of the silica layers on the thermal conductivity of the material is compared to the influence of other fillers to determine which is superior. The authors found that particle size and ...
