Description

Nanofillers for Binary Polymer Blends covers major advances in the field of polymer-blend nanocomposites. The book encompasses the fundamentals of polymer blends, various nanofillers, experimental techniques used in their fabrication, the characterization of various polymer blend nanocomposites, and theoretical evaluations of various properties. The properties and potential applications that have been achieved in various polymer blends by the addition of nanofillers are also highlighted. Applications for commercial products, including automotive parts, packaging, construction materials, biotechnology, medical devices, building materials, computer housings, car interiors, etc., are also covered in detail. This is an important reference source for materials scientists and engineers looking to increase their understanding of how nanofillers are being used in polymer blends.

Key Features

  • Outlines the various types of nanofillers, explaining how the properties of each enhances the morphology, rheology, mechanical, dynamic mechanical, viscoelastic, electrical and thermal properties of polymer blends
  • Provides information on the theory, modeling and simulation of nano-filled polymer blends
  • Assesses the mechanism of selective localization of nanofillers in polymer blends, the effect of localization of nanofillers on the microstructure, and the relative performance of polymer blends
