Challenges in Fabrication of Polymer Nanocomposites (PNCs) 2003-01-2914

As is the case for conventional composites, the key to the performance of polymer nanocomposites is the quality of dispersion of the nano-reinforcement and the interfacial interaction between the matrix and the reinforcement phase. Optimization of these properties requires various special and complicated treatments, which are not always easy to determine. The aim of this paper is to give some examples of the application of different approaches to both thermoset and thermoplastic polymer nanocomposites, fabricated by different means, such as solution, melt-processing, and in-situ polymerization.
