Abstract:Montmorillonite (MMT) modified with alkyl ammonium ions were dispersed in an epoxy/ methyl nadic anhydride (MNA) system to form epoxy/MMT composites. Processing conditions of the composites were optimized by the orthogonal experimental design. The dispersion of the MMT in the epoxy resins was investigated by X-ray diffraction and AFM. The mechanical and dielectric properties were analyzed. The results showed that with respect to the pure epoxy, the impact strength of the composites was improved approximately 1… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
