Unsaturated Polyester Resin Nanocomposites Containing ZnO Modified with Oleic Acid Activated by N , N ′-Carbonyldiimidazole

Hydrophobic zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles were produced through grafting aminopropyltriethoxysilane (APS) and oleic acid (OA), which was activated by N,N′-carbonyldiimidazole (CDI). The functional group containing ZnO nanoparticles were incorporated into unsaturated polyester (UP) resin, and their dispersibility in the UP matrix and effects on the… CONTINUE READING
