Comparative analysis of crystallization behavior induced by different mineral fillers in polypropylene nanocomposites
(SAGE Publications, 2020-06-04)
A comparative analysis of crystallization behavior induced by several mineral fillers in polypropylene nanocomposites was performed. Morphological changes and thermal properties of nanocomposites were evaluated, considering ...
Physical and mechanical properties of thermoplastic starch/montmorillonite nanocomposite films
Glycerol-plasticized starch/clay nanocomposites films were prepared from potato starch and three different loadings of montmorillonite aqueous suspensions by casting, to study the effect of the nanoclay in the properties ...
Influence of processing and particle morphology on final properties of polypropylene/talc nanocomposites
(John Wiley & Sons Inc, 2020-08)
The influence of different processing operations as well as particle morphology and concentration on microstructure and final mechanical properties of polypropylene/talc nanocomposites was studied, performing not only a ...
Breathable polyethylene/sepiolite nanocomposite ﬁlms
(Society of Plastics Engineers, 2013-11)
Polyethylene/sepiolite nanocomposite films provide a new material with high elongation at break and transparency, increased Young's modulus and strength, and higher gas permeability.
Active nanocomposite films based on soy proteins-montmorillonite- clove essential oil for the preservation of refrigerated bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus) fillets
(Elsevier Science, 2018-02)
This manuscript evaluates the potential application of active nanocomposite films based on soy protein isolate (SPI)-montmorillonite (MMT)-clove essential oil (CEO) to the preservation of muscle fillets of bluefin tuna ...
Development of silver nanoparticles/gelatin thermoresponsive nanocomposites: Characterization and antimicrobial activity
(Bentham Science Publishers, 2019-10)
Background: Skin and soft tissue infections involve microbial invasion of the skin and underlying soft tissues. To overcome this problem, nanocomposites were obtained using gelatin as a biopolymer scaffold and silver ...
Resol/montmorillonite nanocomposites obtained by in situ polymerization
(John Wiley & Sons Inc, 2009-05-27)
Nanocomposites based on resol resin and layered silicates were obtained by in situ polymerization. An increment in the viscosity and in the content of free formaldehyde in the prepolymer with the addition of clay was ...
Enzymatic Synthesis of Amorphous Calcium Phosphate−Chitosan Nanocomposites and Their Processing into Hierarchical Structures
(American Chemical Society, 2008-01)
Nanocomposites of amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP) nanoparticles embedded within chitosan (CHI) have been prepared through an enzymatically assisted route. Cryogenic processing (ISISA) of hydrogel nanocomposites has allowed ...
Processing and microstructure of PCL/clay nanocomposites
(Elsevier Science Sa, 2007-07)
The morphology and mechanical properties of polycaprolactone/clay nanocomposite films prepared by two techniques (casting: exfoliation-adsorption; intensive mixing: melt-intercalation) were studied. Casting, which is a ...
Carboxymethylcellulose–montmorillonite nanocomposite films activated with murta (Ugni molinae Turcz) leaves extract
The functionality of nanocomposite films based on carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) and montmorillonite (MMT) activated with murta (Ugni molinae Turcz) leaves extract was studied. Films were prepared by casting from film-forming ...
