Improved mechanical properties of polymer nanocomposites incorporating graphene-like BN: Dependence on the number of BN layers

Mangalampalli, S.R.N. Kiran; Raidongia, Kalyan; Ramamurty, U; Rao, C.N.R.


The mechanical properties of composites of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) with two-dimensional graphene-like boron nitride (BN) have been investigated to explore the dependence of the properties on the number of BN layers. This study demonstrates that significantly improved mechanical properties are exhibited by the composite with the fewest number of BN layers. Thus, with incorporation of three BN layers, the hardness and elastic modulus of the composite showed an increase of 125% and 130%,...[Show more]
