Supercritical carbon dioxide-assisted silanization of multi-walled carbon nanotubes and their effect on the thermo-mechanical properties of epoxy nanocomposites
Supercritical carbon dioxide was employed as the solvent for the functionalization of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) with an epoxy-capped silane. The silanization protocol was found to be a suitable green alternative ...
Bio-inspired green surface functionalization of PMMA for multifunctional capacitors
(RSC Advances, 2014)
Poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA)-based dielectric materials are of prime interest for many electronic and power devices. However, the low dielectric constant and hydrophobic nature of PMMA limit its success in many ...
Effect of silane structure on the properties of silanized multiwalled carbon nanotube-epoxy nanocomposites
Multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were functionalized with aminosilanes via an aqueous deposition route. The size and morphology of siloxane oligomers grafted to the MWCNTs was tuned by varying the silane functionality ...
Anisotropic buckypaper through shear-induced mechanical alignment of carbon nanotubes in water
A simple method for aligning nanotubes in buckypaper with a modified Taylor–Couette system is reported. Using shear forces produced by a rotating cylinder to orient multi-walled carbon nanotubes in a surfactant-assisted ...
