Manufacturing the Hybrid Materials of Polypropylene/Nano Poly(Phenylsilsesquioxane) with Good Thermal Stability
The nano poly(phenylsilsesquioxane) particles (nano-PPSQ) were prepared with both basic and acidic catalyzed processes and the PP/nano-PPSQ composites were prepared by melt blending method. The morphology and thermal stability of PP/nano-PPSQ composites were characterized by SEM, XRD and TGA. The SEM results showed that the particles were well dispersed in the PP matrix and the XRD revealed that the addition of nano-PPSQ influences the crystallinity of PP. The thermogravimetric analysis results of the PP/ nano-PPSQ composites indicated that the incorporation of nano-PPSQ can improve the thermal stability of PP obviously.
