|Title:||Investigation of surface properties of polymer nanocomposites||Authors:||Loo, Leslie Sun Sun.
|Keywords:||DRNTU::Engineering::Chemical engineering::Polymers and polymer manufacture||Issue Date:||2009||Abstract:||In this report, the surface properties of polymer nanocomposites were investigated and optimized. The abrasive wear mechanism in polymer/layered silicate nanocomposites was determined. It was found that the poor abrasion resistance is attributed to defects at the clay-polymer interface, resulting in greater wear of the polymer matrix. The abrasion resistance of the nanocomposites could be enhanced by surface treatment with oxygen plasma for short durations.||Description:||180 p.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/46704||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
