Thermal and Electrical Properties of Polyamide/Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes Nanocomposites

, , , , , , , , , ,
In the present work we investigate the influence of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) on the thermal and electrical properties of a polyamide 6 (PA6) matrix by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and dielectric relaxation spectroscopy (DRS) [...]

Morphology Studies And Potential Applications Of Poly(N,N-Dimethylacrylamide)-l-Polyisobutylene Amphiphilic Polymer Conetworks

, , , , , ,
Poly(N,N-dimethylacrylamide)-l-polyisobutylene (PDMAAm-l-PIB) amphiphilic conetworks were synthesized from two incompatible polymers, i.e. hydrophilic PDMAAm and strongly hydrophobic PIB in a wide range of composition (38-80 m/m % PIB). DSC and SAXS measurement results show that a [...]

Novel Supramolecules Based on Architecturally Variant alpha-Cyclodextrin Polyrotaxanes and Nanorod-Like alpha-Cyclodextrin Self-Assembly

, , , ,
Self-assembly (SA-ICs) of architecturally variant alpha-cyclodextrin (alpha-CD) inclusion complexes (ICs) formed by host-guest reaction with four polymeric guest having different molecular architectures (star-shaped, hyperbranched, diblocked, and linear polymer) and nanorod-like self-assembly (SA-CD) of alpha-CD could [...]

Synthesis and Characterization of Recycled Polycarbonate/Organo-montmorillonite Nanocomposites

, , , ,
This study aims to synthesize and investigate the electrical, chemical and thermo-mechanical properties of recycled polycarbonate/organo-montmorillonite nanocomposites. Polycarbonate from post-consumer wastes was recovered by mechanical abrasion process and chemical stripping. Formulations of 1-10% organo-montmorillonite (o-mmt) [...]

Thermal and Electrical Characterization of Polypropylene/Carbon Nanotubes Nanocomposites

, , , , , , , , , , , , ,
The influence of multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) content on electrical/dielectric and thermal properties of CNTs-reinforced polypropylene (PP) nanocomposites is studied. We focus on the investigation of electrical and dielectric properties in relation to percolation: ac [...]
