RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT OF NOVEL MULTIFUNCTIONAL POLYMER NANOCOMPOSITES

Abstract: 

The project objective is to develop multi-functional nanocomposite materials of polymeric matrix, the structural and morphological characterization of those materials as well as the systematic study of their properties. The structural and morphological characterization of the samples will be carried out by using mainly standard microscopy techniques (SEM, TEM, AFM), infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), Raman spectroscopy and X-ray scattering (XRD).

Particular emphasis will be given to the study of the interfacial interactions between the inclusions and the polymer matrix. This investigation on the produced samples will be carried out by using techniques of dielectric relaxation spectroscopy (DRS) over a wide range of frequencies and temperatures, electrical conductivity measurements using AC and DC, magnetization experiments, Moessbauer spectroscopy, as well as measurements of frequency and temperature dependence of the refractive index using the prism coupling technique. In order to complete a full exploration of the relationship between the structure and the properties of the materials, the mechanical properties, the thermal stability and the behavior of the end products will be studied further by using thermal analysis techniques (TGA, DSC, DTA) as well as techniques of dynamic mechanical analysis (DMTA).

The expected results are twofold and those are related to basic research as well as to technological applications.

The ultimate goal of the basic research perspective is to develop knowledge and a better understanding of the relationship between the structure and the properties of these materials. On the other hand, from the perspective of technological applications, the basic aim is the manufacturing of multifunctional materials appearing to have complex electrical and magnetic properties, large storage capacity and recovery of information and energy (electric, magnetic).
