Introduction Nanoparticles show a strong tendency to agglomerate due to the electrostatic forces [1]. Therefore, in order to eliminate this effect, chemical and physical modification is usually applied [2], and in a consequence, nanoparticles if used a reinforcing phase in polymer matrix [3], do not agglomerate and can be more uniformly distributed in a polymer matrix. As a result, improved mechanical or surface properties of resulting nanocomposite, can be obtained. Surface modification of… CONTINUE READING
