Tensegrity inspired Nanocomposite Structures Book Review:

The main goal of this research is to construct hierarchical microstructures from polymer nanocomposites. Specifically, the research focused on constructing tensegrity-inspired microstructure where the nanoparticles are the compression members and the polymer matrix is tensile web. In order to achieve the tensegrity-inpired microstruture, the research was conducted with the following objectives. 1. Synthesis of Hydroxyapatite (HAp) nanoparticles of controlled shapes using block copolymer templates. 2. Investigation of the effects of particle loadings and shapes on isotropic nanocomposite properties. 3. Construction of HAp building blocks into the tensegrity-inspired microstructures First, in order to use the nanoparticles for this structure, needle-shaped HAp nanoparticles were synthesized using block copolymer templates. The results indicated that significant amount of polymer remained on particle surface. Since these particles were coated with polymer blocks, the decorated polymer blocks were considered as the interphase material which would be used to prestress the HAp nanoparticles, and the particles would be acted as the building blocks for constructing tensegrity-inspired microstructure. For nanocomposites, polymer coating on HAp nanoparticles promoted particle dispersion. The effect of particle shapes on thermomechanical properties did not show significant differences between the two particle systems due to their low aspect ratios and chemical similarity. However, the polymer crystallinity and crystallization showed different trend as a function of particle loadings in two particle systems, and the behavior was unified through a common particle spacing of approximately 120 nm. In order to investigate the effect of particle arrangement in the polymer matrix, needle-shaped HAp nanoparticles synthesized with two different block copolymers were mixed with different morphology of polymer matrices and manipulated particle arrangement using the drawing process. Nanocomposites prepared with different matrix morphologies showed the similar dispersion characteristics and reinforcement behavior. The experimental results showed the drawing process influenced the particle arrangement in the polymer matrix, and the particle arrangement and reinforcement behavior were influenced by polymer matrix morphology. The thermomechanical properties of both matrix systems enhanced through the drawing process in the glassy region, but the effect of degree of particle orientation was difficult to distinguish due to low aspect ratios of HAp particles which was not enough to impact on overall microstructure.

Nanocomposites Book Review:

To have unimaginably outstanding useful properties (physical, mechanical, electrical, optical, chemical, and magnetic) in a single material design is a highly challenging task in the material science community, which can be achieved through nanocomposites. These nanocomposites can be produced from all conventional materials, which include polymers, metals/alloys, and ceramics, by modifying their internal structures. Due to modification of the structures of all kinds of conventional materials, at either the nano or ultra-fine level, the materials exhibit superior performance, which is a boon for all fields of science. In general, nanocomposite materials can be manufactured by solid-state processing techniques, liquid metallurgy, ex-situ and in-situ powder metallurgy, and other basic science synthesis routes. Furthermore, the possibility of making environmentally friendly materials is also possible with nanotechnology. Therefore, to investigate and demonstrate developments in the field of nanocomposites, this book is targeted at all the scientific personnel working in this field.

Dispersing Layered Silicates in Polymer Melts Book Review:

Polymer nanocomposites have been a keen area of research interest for the past decade. In place of traditional fillers, nanocomposites use significantly smaller amounts of reinforcing material with very high surface area per unit volume. The promise of polymer nanocomposites ranges from improved mechanical strength, reduced thermal expansion, improved barrier properties, decreased flammability, to electrical conductivity, but all of these potential improvements depend on good dispersion of the nanocomposite filler. The goal of this research has been twofold: first, to develop an effective technique in which melt rheology can be used to characterize exfoliation of nanoclay in this important class of materials and to determine the effect that applied stresses have on such polymer nanocomposite systems. To date, the use of melt rheology in characterizing exfoliation in polymer nanocomposites has been limited to qualitative assessment of a solid-like plateau that evolves in the elastic modulus due to the dispersing nanoclay particles forming and acting as a reinforcing network structure typically known as a "house of cards" morphology. By applying scaling laws from fractal gel rheology to linear rheology for polypropylene and polystyrene nanocomposite systems, melt rheology has been used effectively to determine the fractal dimension of the clay network structure in nanocomposites. These scaling laws have also allowed for percolation behavior to be determined for the nanocomposite systems and with it aspect ratios for the particles have been determined. These rheological predictions have shown to prove accurate when compared to direct measurements from X-ray scattering and TEM microscopy analyses. High shear stress mixing regimens have shown to be successful in creating well dispersed polystyrene nanocomposites. For polypropylene nanocomposites, a new blend creation mechanism, multilayer coextrusion has been employed to make thin films of nanocomposite materials. Characterizing the mechanical and thermal properties of these films suggests multilayer coextrusion can be used to create dispersed nanoclay morphologies in polymer melts. This thesis has provided a new and reliable rheological tool for quickly assessing dispersion and has suggested a new multilayer coextrusion technique to make tailored nanomaterials.
