Preparation and Characterization of Self-Dispersal Nanometer Carbon Black Pigment
The surfaces of carbon black were modified by nitric acid oxidation. The surface structures of the original and oxidized carbon black were investigated by means of FT-IR and XPS, respectively. Furthermore, the oxidized carbon black and distilled water were mixed to form the self-dispersal nanometer carbon black pigment. The particle size distribution and dispersion stability of the carbon black pigment were investigated by means of particle-size analyzer and spectrometer, respectively. The results showed that some highly marked hydrophilic character functional groups on carbon black surfaces were increased greatly by nitric acid oxidation.
