Bentonite-derived monolithic materials with and without distributed nanoscale turbostratic carbon, obtained by hot-pressing organobentonite and bentonite particles, respectively, in the absence of an added binder, exhibit exceptionally high dielectric loss while the electrical conductivity is relatively low. The combination of high dielectric loss and relatively low conductivity has not been previously achieved. An additional advantage of these materials is their high-temperature ability. An… 

Structural characterizations and electrical conduction mechanism of CaBi2Nb2O9 single-phase nanocrystallites synthesized via sucrose-assisted sol–gel combustion method

A pure phase of nanocrystalline ferroelectric of calcium bismuth niobate (CaBi2Nb2O9, CBNO) has been synthesized via sucrose-assisted sol–gel combustion method. It was prepared using calcium nitrate,

Enhanced Dielectric and Mechanical Properties of Ternary Composites via Plasticizer-Induced Dense Interfaces

A novel strategy of high-temperature plastification towards a polymeric matrix has been proposed to fabricate ternary nanocomposites with balanced dielectric and mechanical characteristics by the solution cast method in order to reduce costs and simplify steps during large-scale preparation.



Low-frequency dielectric properties of three bentonites at different adsorbed water states.

Electrical Spectroscopy of Kaolin and Bentonite Slurries

The electrical conductivity and dielectric permittivity of clay-water systems were used to characterize the physicochemical state of kaolin and bentonite-water systems. The dielectric permittivity

AC conductivity and dielectric analysis of graphite–clay nanocomposite

A number of graphite–clay composites with varying percentages of graphite in the clay host have been prepared and their AC conductivities and dielectric behaviours have been studied in the frequency

Low-Cost Preparation of High-k Expanded Graphite/Carbon Nanotube/Cyanate Ester Composites with Low Dielectric Loss and Low Percolation Threshold

Expanded graphites (EGs) or modified EGs (eEGs) were blended with multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) in a big weight ratio to prepare low-cost composites, coded as (EG-MWCNT)/cyanate ester (CE) or

Expanded graphite–epoxy composites with high dielectric constant

Composites of an expanded graphite/diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A (DGEBA) were prepared by a simple melt blending method, and their dielectric and mechanical properties were investigated. During
