Abstract: In this paper, epoxy eco-composites reinforced with recycled cellulose fiber (RCF) and nano-fillers such as nano-clay platelets (30B) and halloysite nanotubes (HNTs), have been fabricated and investigated. The influences of RCF/nano-filler dispersion on the microstructure, physical and mechanical characteristics have been characterized. Results indicate that flexural strength decreased for the majority of study samples due to the poor dispersion of nano-fillers and the existence of voids within the samples. In contrast, impact toughness and fracture toughness were improved for all reinforced samples. The effect of water absorption was positive in terms of enhancing the impact toughness of the composites. Addition of nanoclay was found to increase the porosities of all nanocomposites.

Abstract: The use of secondary-ion mass spectrometry (SIMS), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) to detect the existence of amorphous silica in Ti3SiC2 oxidised at 500–1000°C is described. The formation of an amorphous SiO2 layer and its growth in thickness with temperature was monitored using dynamic SIMS. Results of NMR and TEM verify for the first time the direct evidence of amorphous silica formation during the oxidation of Ti3SiC2 at 1000°C.
