Polymer-Surface Interactions in Nanofilled Polymers



Alamgir Karim, Jack F. Douglas


An understanding of the influence of polymer-surface interactions on the interfacial properties of nanoparticle fillers in polymer matrices is critical for applications of nanoparticle filled polymer materials. The infuence of nanoparticle-surace interactions is additionally important in understanding and controlling the morphology of coated polymer films containing filler particles. We summarize some of our recent investigations of nanofiller effects on the properties of bulk and polymer film materials.
