Quantification of the Interface Interactions in Polymer Nanocomposites

Abstract:

Article Preview

Interfaces are important for many properties and applications of multiphase materials. This is particular true for particle-reinforced polymer composites, where the interfacial characteristics between particle and polymer play a crucial role in load transfer and mechanical properties. In polymer nanocomposites, the adhesion strength between particle and polymer matrix is a major factor in determining their mechanical properties. In this work, we present our recent study towards the quantification of the interaction strength at the interface of clay-based polymer nanocomposites by molecular dynamics simulation.
