Interfacial and bulk nanostructure of liquid polymer nanocomposites

McDonald, Samila; Wood, Jared A.; FitzGerald, Paul A.; Craig, Vincent S. J.; Warr, Gregory G.; Atkin, Rob


Liquid polymer nanocomposites (l-PNCs) have been prepared using silica nanoparticles with diameters of 15 nm (l-PNC-15) and 24 nm (l-PNC-24), and Jeffamine M-2070, an amine-terminated ethylene oxide/propylene oxide (PEO/PPO, ratio 31/10) copolymer. Jeffamine M-2070 was used as the host liquid in which the particles were suspended and was also grafted onto the particle surface to prevent aggregation. The grafting density of Jeffamine M-2070 on the particle surfaces was ∼0.75 chains nm(-2). When...[Show more]
