Preparation and Characterization of Environmental-Friendly Epoxy Resins/Clay Nanocomposites

Abstract:

Article Preview

The environmental-compatible epoxy resins/clay nanocomposites were prepared by using epoxidized castor oil (ECO) and two ion-exchanged clays. The glass transition temperature (Tg) and mechanical interfacial properties of ECO/clay nanocomposites were investigated. As a result, the nanocomposites showed higher Tg than that of neat ECO. The mechanical interfacial properties of both the nanocomposites were significantly increased on increasing the clay content.
