In the last 2 decades, plenty of works have been devoted to produce polymer nanocomposites
inorganic nano fillers in order to enhance the properties of polymers.
According to the researchers, the produced nanostructures can be used in the production of PVA polymeric nanocomposites
The global nanocomposites
market size is expected to reach USD 7.
can be applied to a wide array of biological and chemical-sensing applications, such as monitoring microorganism growth and pH and in drug delivery.
1,2,3,4] Recently several papers have been published as Ag and Ag-nanocomposite
and antibacterial activity of these nanoparticles and nanocomposites
Contributors from chemistry and materials science, but also the life sciences, explore coatings made with polymer nanocomposites
added to change the function of the substrate.
The book also examines the application of rubber nanocomposites
in tire engineering.
At a concentration of 0,20% MWCNT, which is higher than optimum concentration value of 0,175% MWCNT (determined by the rheological analysis), polyester/MWCNT nanocomposites
show bigger clusters but the distances between them are smaller (fig.
Their topics include new microscopy techniques for understanding polymer/nanotube composite properties better, polymer nanocomposites
with clay and carbon nanotubes, properties of polyurethane/carbon nanotube nanocomposites
, the synthesis and properties of vinyl polymer/carbon nanotube nanocomposites
prepared by suspension polymerization, polylactide-based carbon nanotube nanocomposites
, elastomers filled with carbon nanotubes, effects of structure and morphology on the tensile properties of polymers, and promises and current challenges.
Using a twin-screw extruder, scientists at North Carolina State University and elsewhere synthesized soy protein isolate-montmorillonite (MMT) nanocomposites
to produce biodegradable films with enhanced mechanical and barrier properties.
will play an important role for developing advanced printable technology.
