Description

Carbon-Based Nanofillers and Their Rubber Nanocomposites: Carbon Nano-Objects presents their synthetic routes, characterization and structural properties, and the effect of nano fillers on rubber nanocomposites. The synthesis and characterization of all carbon-based fillers is discussed, along with their morphological, thermal, mechanical, dynamic mechanical and rheological properties. In addition, the book covers the theory, modeling and simulation aspects of these nanocomposites, along with various applications. Users will find this a unique contribution to the field of rubber science and technology that is ideal for graduates, post graduates, engineers, research scholars, polymer engineers, polymer technologists, and those in biomedical fields.

Key Features

  • Reviews rubber nanocomposites, including carbon associated nanomaterials (nanocarbon black, graphite, graphene, carbon nanotubes, fullerenes and diamond)
  • Presents the synthesis and characterization of carbon based nanocomposites
  • Relates the structure of these nanocomposites to their function as rubber additives and their many applications
  • Discusses suitable analytical techniques for the characterization of carbon-based nanocomposites

Readership

Researchers, professionals, industrial practitioners, graduate students, and senior undergraduates in the fields of rubber science and technology, polymer science and engineering, materials science, surface science, bioengineering and chemical engineering, who work in similar areas or are interested in the field of elastomers
