The Thermal Properties of Polystyrene/Magnetic Polyhedral Oligomeric Silsesquioxane (POSS ) Nanocomposites Prepared under Magnetic Field
Polystyrene composites containing polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS1) were prepared by bulk free radical polymerization under magnetic field and no magnetic field. XRD studies indicate dispersion of POSS1 in PS/POSS1 97/3 nanocomposites prepared under magnetic field is better than those prepared without magnetic field. The PS/POSS1 nanocomposites also display much higher initial decomposed temperature in comparison with neat PS. The initial decomposed temperature of PS/POSS1 nanocomposites prepared under magnetic filed are higher than those with same content of POSS1 without magnetic field.
