Preparation and characterization of chrysotile for use as nanofiller in polyolefins.

Abstract

Chrysotile was treated using three methods to reduce its toxicity and prepare it for use as nanofiller in olefin polymerization. In two of the treatments chrysotile was leached with hydrochloric acid at different concentrations, 0.1 and 3.0 M, and subsequently subjected to thermal treatment. In the third method the chrysotile was only exposed to a thermal… (More)
