The role of interface surfaces in the formation of the properties of polymer nanocomposites


The key role of polymer matrix–nanofiller interface surfaces in determination of the structure and properties of particulate-filled polymer nanocomposites is shown. Aggregation of the initial particles of the nanofiller results in a dramatic decrease in the surface area and can cause a transition of the originally postulated nanocomposite to the class of microcomposites. The suppression of aggregation provides a significant improvement in the characteristics of the polymer nanocomposites.
