Importance of superior dispersion versus filler surface modification inproducing robust polymer nanocomposites: The example of polypropylene/nanosilica hybrids

Abstract

With polymer nanocomposites, achieving highly effective dispersion of agglomerated nanofiller and major or optimal property enhancements remain challenges. A commonly posited solution is to improve the polymer-filler surface thermodynamic compatibility; this approach has led to significant improvements in some cases, but it has not provided a general… (More)
