Paper Title:
Effect of Nano-Filler Network on the Rheological Behaviours of Poly(vinylidene fluoride) Nanocomposites
  Abstract

A nano-filler network constructed by layered silicates and multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) has been prepared. The structure of the network was confirmed by attenuated total reflectance Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and dynamic rheological test. The results showed that a plateau in the storage modulus at low frequency occurred, which indicated the pseudo solid-like behaviour for the sample with nano-filler network, and the jamming effect due to the nano-filler network dominated the viscoelatic behaviour at low frequency. This effect was sensitive to the frequency and decreased quickly with the increase of frequency. At the same time, the introduction of nanofillers and the presence of nano-filler network affected the complex viscosity and shear thinning too, especially at low frequency.
