Effect of dispersion capability of organoclay on cellular structure and physical properties of PMMA/clay nanocomposite foams

The authors prepared PMMA/clay composites by the in situ bulk polymerization method. The prepared composites were characterized by FT-IR, WAXRD, SEM, TEM, DMA and the transient plane source (TPS) technique to measure thermal conductivity. Not only were the thermal properties of the composites studied, but physical and chemical properties as well....

Functionalized graphene sheet filled silicone foam nanocomposites

The authors report the synthesis of a novel functionalized graphene sheet (FGS)/silicone porous nanocomposite with varying concentrations of FGS. The physical and thermal properties of the synthesized nanocomposites were studied in depth. SEM and TEM were used to elucidate the physical microstructure of the materials, and the transient plane source (TPS) technique was used to measure thermal conductivity. The nanocomposite showed an increased thermal conductivity as compared to the ...

Experimental and numerical study of the effective thermal conductivity of nano composites with thermal boundary resistance

Thermal interface resistance results from small gaps and surface geometry mismatches between two materials that make up a composite. Thermal interface resistance is present in most any material that is comprised of two or more components. In the field of thermal interface materials, the majority of novel materials are composites, and thus are subject to thermal interface resistance and thermal boundary resistance (thermal discontinuity at a perfectly bonded interface of ...

Thermally conductive, insulated polyimide nanocomposites by AlO(OH)-coated MWCNTs

In this paper, a thermally conductive insulated inorganic nanolayer of AlO(OH) was coated onto the surface of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) to create a novel thermally conductive material. The coating of MWCNTs with this inorganic layer can effectively avoid the formation of electrically conductive networks in the Pi matrix and provides excellent thermal (conductivity) properties....

Mechanical and thermal properties of polylactide-grafted vapor-grown carbon nanofiber/polylactide nanocomposites

Vapor-grown carbon nanofiber (VGCF) was functionalized by the covalent bonding of polylactide (PLA) in order to generate a composite known as PLA-g-VGCF. This is a multiple step process and does not produce the same composites as regular melt compounding (VGCF/PLA). This new composite was characterized by x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, TGA and TEM in order to quantify and qualify the newly prepared composites, which showed 'remarkable improvement' over the melt ...
