Abstract:

Article Preview

TiO2-g-Polystyrene(PS) nano-microspheres were prepared by grafted styrene monomer on the surface of nano-TiO2 particles via emulsion polymerization, and its surface and morphology were studied by Transmission electron microscopes(TEM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy(FTIR) and thermal gravimetric analysis(TGA). The results showed that the TiO2-g-PS nano-microsphere had a structure of sphericity composed of TiO2 and PS as core and shell respectively. The core-shell nanoparticles were subsequently used as filler in a PS matrix, and the impact strength of the TiO2-g-PS/PS composites were studied. The results showed that the impact strength of the composite material could be improved obviously, the maximum value of impacted strength of the TiO2-g-PS/PS was 1.75kJ/m2, which was 180% higher than that of pure PS. Drawing from the results, it could be confirmed that these core-shell TiO2-g-PS nanosphere fillers could toughen the PS matrix.
