Nanoeffects of Nanocomposites on the Petroleum Recovery and Solar Energy Efficiency
Several polymer inorganic nanocomposites were specially designed for protecting oil formation, enhancing oil recovery in the low permeable strata and solar cell efficicency. The inorganic phase with different load was introduced to the polymer matrix through either the intercalation process of the layered silicates or core-shell particle affinity.Several novel nanoeffects were discovered in such polymers as polyacrylamide, poly(ethylene terephthalate),starch, polynucleic aromatic resins–montmorrilonite or SiO2 nanocomposites. In the nanocomposites, the nano size was 10-70nm, the nanoeffects of particle encapsulation, dispersion, molecular weight growth, barrier, and specially solar absorption and solar power transformation efficiency,etc.were presented and reviewed. The tunable nanoeffects of the nanocomposites and some very obvious practical efficicnecy to traditional and new enenergy were first reported.
