  • Nonisothermal crystallization kinetics of polyphenylene sulfide composites
           based on organic clay modified by benzimidazolium salt
    • Authors: Jian, X; Xuebing, W, Bingyao, D, Qingsheng, L.
      Pages: 761 - 772
      Abstract: Polyphenylene sulfide (PPS)/organic clay nanocomposites were prepared by simple melt blending. A synthesized benzimidazolium salt was used to modify the sodium montmorillonite in order to improve the compatibility with the PPS. The nonisothermal crystallization kinetics of PPS/organic clay composites were investigated by differerntial scanning calorimetry(DSC). It was observed that the crystallization peak temperature of PPS/organic clay composites was higher than pure PPS at various cooling rates. Several models such as the Ozawa and Mo equation were used to characterize the nonisothermal cooling crystallization kinetics of the PPS/organic clay composites. The results indicated that the Ozawa equation was not successful, while the Mo equation was successful to describe the nanoisothermal ctystallization kinetics of PPS/organic clay nanocomposites. The results also indicated that organic clay not only served as heterogeneous nucleating agents for PPS crystallization at lower content but also restricted the mobility and diffusion of PPS chains at higher content. These results were further supported by the crystallization activation energy of the samples determined by the Kissinger method.

  • Development and characterization of tetraglycidyl epoxy reinforced
           inorganic hybrid nanomaterials for high performance applications
    • Authors: Duraibabu, D; Alagar, M, Kumar, S. A.
      Pages: 773 - 783
      Abstract: In the present work, tetraglycidyl 1,4'-bis (4-amine-phenoxy) benzene (TGBAPB) epoxy resin has been developed using 1,4'-bis (4-amine-phenoxy) benzene and epichlorohydrin. The amine-functionalized nanoalumina (F-nAl) was prepared using 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane. TGBAPB epoxy resin was further reinforced with different weight percentages (1–5 wt%) of F-nAl and were cured with 4,4'-diaminodiphenylmethane. Thermal and thermomechanical behavior of TGBAPB epoxy matrix and nanocomposites were studied using thermogravimetric and differential scanning calorimetric analyses. The surface morphology of epoxy nanocomposites was examined using transmission electron microscopic, scanning electron microscopic, and atomic force microscopic studies respectively.Data obtained from mechanical and thermal studies/analysis indicate that these nanocomposites could be used as high-performance materials for varied advanced industrial and engineering applications.

  • The influence of processing aids on the melt stability and mobility of
           poly(arylene sulfide sulfone)
    • Authors: Li, S; Kong, Y, Wang, X, Zhang, G, Long, S, Yang, J.
      Pages: 784 - 792
      Abstract: The phosphorous antioxidant bis[2,4-bis(1-methyl-1-phenylethyl)phenyl] pentaerythritol diphosphite (s-9228), hindered phenol antioxidant N,N'-hexane-1,6-diylbis-[3,5-di-tert-butyl-4-hydroxyphenylpropionamide] (1098), and zinc acetate (ZnAc) were chosen as processing aids to improve the melt stability and mobility of poly(arylene sulfide sulfone) (PASS). Different contents and components of the processing aids were discussed. The capillary rheometer test demonstrated that 3 wt% ZnAc showed better effect with the change of the shear rates. In contrast, the parallel-plate rheometer test proved that the complex antioxidant, including 0.8 wt% s-9228 and 1.6 wt% 1098, showed better effect with the change of temperature. Both the capillary rheometer and parallel-plate rheometer test showed that the compounding aid consisting of 0.8 wt% s-9228, 1.6 wt% 1098, and 3 wt% ZnAc showed the best effect with the dramatically improved melt stability and mobility. Also, PASS could be processed successfully by extruding and through an injection machine with the help of the compounding aid. Meanwhile, the effects of the applied processing aids on melt complex viscosity and modulus were also discussed.

  • Novel cardo poly(arylene ether nitrile sulfone) copolymers bearing
           xanthene moiety in the main chain
    • Authors: Guo, D.-D; Huang, Z.-Z, Sang, X.-Y, Sheng, S.-R.
      Pages: 793 - 799
      Abstract: A series of cardo poly(arylene ether nitrile sulfone) (PENS) copolymers containing xanthene moiety were prepared by the nucleophilic substitution reaction of 9,9-bis(4-hydroxyphenyl)xanthene with 2,6-difluorobenzonitrile (DFBN) and 4,4'-dichlorodiphenylsulfone (DCDPS) by varying stoichiometric ratio of DFBN to DCDPS (90/10–40/60) using N,N-dimethylacetamide (DMAc) as solvent in the presence of anhydrous potassium carbonate. The copolymers having number-average molecular weights of 17,100–18,300 g mol–1 with the polydispersity index from 1.79 to 2.11 were amorphous and were easily soluble in polar solvents such as N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone and DMAc, and even in tetrahydrofuran and chloroform at room temperature. The resulting PENS copolymers showed glass transition temperature (Tg) between 253.3°C and 260.4°C, and the Tg values were found to increase with increasing sulfone content in the copolymers. Thermogravimetric studies showed that all the polymers were stable up to 450°C, with 10% weight loss temperatures ranging from 500°C to 524°C and char yields of 56–63% at 700°C under nitrogen atmosphere. All new polymers could be cast into strong and flexible films with tensile strengths of 56.7–78.8 MPa, elongations at break of 7.8–9.1%, and tensile moduli of 2.1–3.2 GPa.

  • Improving the mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties of polyimide
           by incorporating functionalized graphene oxide
    • Authors: Wang, C; Lan, Y, Li, X, Yu, W, Qian, Y.
      Pages: 800 - 808
      Abstract: In this study, we have developed a facile and effective method for fabricating polyimide (PI)-based nanocomposites incorporating octadecylamine (ODA)-functionalized graphene oxide (ODA-fGO) nanosheets. ODA-fGO sheets exhibit superior dispersibility and compatibility with the PI matrix and are successfully obtained through a chemical reaction between graphene oxide (GO) and ODA. The PI-based composites of various loading content of ODA-fGO sheets were prepared via in situ polymerization and thermal imidization process. The mechanical and electrical properties of the PI/ODA-fGO composites were significantly improved relative to pure PI because of the excellent dispersion of ODA-fGO and the adequate compatibility between fillers and the PI matrix. A 40.7% increase in tensile strength and a 95.5% improvement of Young’s modulus were observed for the 3 wt% ODA-fGO (PI/3 wt% ODA-fGO) loading content composite. The electrical and thermal conductivity of PI/3 wt% ODA-fGO was 3.8 x 10–2 S m–1 and 0.468 W m–1 K–1, respectively, which is more than 1011 times and almost 3 times higher than that of pure PI. The reported approach provides an effective strategy for developing high-performance and multifunctional polymer-based composite materials.

  • Influence of nanosilica and methyl methacrylate-butadiene-styrene
           core-shell rubber particles on the physical-mechanical properties and cure
           kinetics of diglycidyl ether of bisphenol-A-based epoxy resin
    • Authors: Mousavi, S. R; Amiri Amraei, I.
      Pages: 809 - 819
      Abstract: The influence of nanosilica and methyl methacrylate–butadiene–styrene (MBS) core–shell rubber particles on the physical-mechanical properties and cure kinetics of diglycidyl ether of bisphenol-A-based epoxy resin (EP)/dicyandiamide were investigated using tensile test, dynamic mechanical thermal analysis, and differential scanning calorimetry under dynamic conditions. The results indicated that inclusion of core–shell rubber particles and nanosilica (NS) into EP increased cure onset, peak and end temperatures of the modified EP relative to the neat EP. Studies on cure kinetics based on Kissinger and Ozawa method also showed that there was decrease in the values of Ea and A. Also, the order of the overall reaction was found to be approximately equal to 2. Differential scanning calorimetry graphs obtained by the experimental data had good agreement with that calculated theoretically. Young’s modulus and tensile strength of the EP increase with the inclusion of NS; however, the corresponding values decrease when the core–shell particles are included in the EP. The tensile strength and the modulus of the EP modified with NS and core–shell particles also decreased relative to the neat EP. On the other hand, by adding core–shell particles and NS, the glass transition temperature of the samples remained approximately constant as obtained from dynamic mechanical thermal analysis.

  • The effect of 10-(2,5-dihydroxyphenyl)-9,
           10-dihydro-9-oxa-10-phosphaphenanthrene- 10-oxide on liquid oxygen
           compatibility and cryogenic mechanical properties of epoxy resins
    • Authors: Li, J; Liu, X, Wu, Z, Wang, Z.
      Pages: 820 - 830
      Abstract: In the present study, 10-(2,5-dihydroxyphenyl)-9,10-dihydro-9-oxa-10-phosphaphenanthrene-10-oxide (ODOPB) was chemically incorporated into bisphenol A epoxy resin (EP) to improve liquid oxygen compatibility of the EP. Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy verified that ODOPB was successfully introduced into the molecular chain of bisphenol A EP. Thermogravimetric analysis confirmed that the ODOPB-modified EPs exhibited much better thermal stability than the pristine ones during the whole decomposition process under oxygen atmosphere. The 4,4'-diaminodiphenyl sulfone (DDS)-cured resins showed higher initial degradation temperature, and the 4,4'-diaminodiphenyl methane (DDM)-cured resins demonstrated better thermal stability at high temperature. The results of limited oxygen index measurements indicated that the modified EPs also possessed much improved flame retardancy. Furthermore, the enhanced liquid oxygen compatibility of the modified EPs characterized by the liquid oxygen impact test implied that improving thermal stability and flame retardancy of EPs was beneficial to enhance their liquid oxygen compatibility. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy results demonstrated that the DDS-cured modified EPs had much higher reactivity with liquid oxygen compared to the DDM-cured ones. Mechanical performance tests indicated that the introduction of ODOPB could simultaneously improve the tensile properties and fracture toughness of the EPs at cryogenic temperature. Summarily, it can be considered that the ODOPB-modified EPs have the application prospect in the fabrication of the composite liquid oxygen tanks.

  • Effects of silane-modified multiwalled carbon nanotubes and
           9,10-dihydro-9-oxa-10 phosphaphenanthrene-10-oxide on the flame retardancy
           and mechanical properties of bismaleimide resin
    • Authors: Wang, Z; Wu, W, Zhang, X, Wang, J, Liu, B.
      Pages: 831 - 841
      Abstract: In this article, the multiwalled carbon nanotubes modified by -aminopropyltriethoxysilane (MWCNT-APTES) and 9,10-dihydro-9-oxa-10 phosphaphenanthrene-10-oxide (DOPO) were added into the 4,4'-bismaleimidophenyl methane (BDM)/2,2'-diallyl bisphenol A (DBA) resins to prepare the flame retardant resins. Morphological observations reveal that the MWCNT-APTES is homogeneously dispersed in the matrix. The impact strength of the resin is improved by adding MWCNT-APTES. Meanwhile, BDM/DBA containing DOPO/MWCNT-APTES achieves vertical burning (UL-94) V-0 rating and a higher limiting oxygen index. Thermogravimetric analysis and scanning electron microscopy measurements have demonstrated that MWCNT-APTES resulted in the increase in char yield and the formation of the thermally stable carbonaceous char. The results of Raman show that the MWCNT-APTES can enhance the graphitization degree of the resin during combustion. All the investigations show that the combination of DOPO and MWCNT-APTES is an effective additive to develop high-performance resins with attractive flame retardance and mechanical properties.

  • Low dielectric behavior of amine functionalized MCM-41 reinforced
           polyimide nanocomposites
    • Authors: Kurinchyselvan, S; Sasikumar, R, Ariraman, M, Gomathipriya, P, Alagar, M.
      Pages: 842 - 853
      Abstract: A class of low dielectric constant polyimide (PI) composites was prepared by means of reduced polarization. Consequently, the nonpolar group of long aliphatic chain bridged diamine was synthesized and utilized to prepare PI with pyromellitic dianhydride and subsequently the porous amine-functionalized mobil composition of matter no. 41 (FMCM-41) was synthesized and reinforced into the PI matrix with a view to reduce the value of dielectric constant of PI. Various analytical techniques such as Fourier transform infrared, proton nuclear magnetic resonance, and carbon nuclear magnetic resonance were used to characterize and confirm the synthesized monomer and polymer. The porous nature of hybrid polymer nanocomposites was ascertained using transmission electron microscopic images, and the aggregations of nanoparticles were confirmed by scanning electron microscopic images. The mechanical (tensile) and dielectric behaviors of a material were ascertained by the measurement of porosity. The optimum concentration of FMCM-41-reinforced PI (7 wt% FMCM-41/PI) has the lowest value of dielectric constant of 2.21 at 1 MHz, and beyond this concentration (10 wt% FMCM-41/PI), the reverse trend was observed in the values of dielectric constant and dielectric loss, due to the agglomeration of silica nanoparticles in the PI matrix.

      Abstract: In this study, bi-, tri-, and tetra-functional epoxy systems were chosen to design network structures using hexahydrophthalic anhydride as curing agent and tris-(dimethylaminomethyl) phenol as accelerant with bifunctional 1,4-butanediol diglycidyl ether as the flexible reactive diluents to further adjust the network structure. The cross-link density and activation energy (Ea) of glass transition were calculated by dynamic mechanical thermal analysis (DMTA) data. The packing of molecular chain and average distance between molecular chains were analyzed by DMTA and X-ray diffraction measurements, respectively. As a result, the loss modulus, glass transition temperature (Tg), cross-link density, average distance between molecular chains and Ea were found to be positively correlated with the degree of functionality. Meanwhile, the storage modulus of cured epoxy products at glass state was found to vary as follows: diglycidyl ether of bisphenol F (DGEBF) > tetraglycidyl diaminodiphenylmethane > triglycidyl-p-aminophenol (TGPAP). The loading of diluents decreased Tg and Ea and increased the storage modulus at glass state of DGEBF and TGPAP systems.

      Abstract: Several poly(arylene ether nitrile) (PAEN) copolymers containing multi-methyl and cardo xanthene groups were synthesized by nucleophilic substitution reaction of 2,6-difluorobenzonitrile with varying molar ratios of 9,9-bis(3,5-dimethyl-4-hydroxyphenyl)xanthene (BDMHPX) and hydroquinone (HQ) (80/20–40/60) in N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP) in the presence of anhydrous potassium carbonate. These new PAENs had inherent viscosities between 0.56 and 0.68 dL g–1, and their weight-average molecular weights and number-average molecular weights were in the range of 33,300–36,500 g mol–1 and 17,300–18,400 g mol–1, respectively. All polymers were amorphous and soluble in dipolar aprotic solvents such as NMP and N,N-dimethylacetamide and even in THF and chloroform at room temperature. These PAENs showed glass transition temperatures (Tgs) between 248°C and 289°C, and the Tg values were found to increase with increase of the BDMHPX content in the polymeric main. Thermogravimetric analysis showed that all PAENs were stable up to 400°C, with 5% weight loss temperatures ranging from 427°C to 448°C and char yields of 57–61% at 700°C under nitrogen atmosphere. All new PAENs could be cast into strong and flexible films with a tensile strength of 93–115 MPa, elongation at break of 10–12%, and tensile modulus of 3.3–3.5 GPa.

  • Direct synthesis of triphenylamine-containing polyarylsulfones from
           
    • Authors: Chen, Z; Lin, Y, Sun, D, Han, Y.
      Pages: 868 - 878
      Abstract: A novel triphenylamine-containing polyarylsulfone (PAS-TPA) was synthesized from commercially available aniline and 1,1'-sulfonylbis(4-fluorobenzene) via two-step N–C coupling reaction under nucleophilic substitution polycondensation condition. Subsequently, a new series of polysulfones with different TPA contents (PSU-TPAs) was developed by the same method. Both PAS-TPA and PSU-TPAs not only exhibited good thermal stability and solubility but also exhibited intense ultraviolet absorption and fluorescence and high fluorescence quantum yield (approximately 16–42%). Their ideal highest occupied molecular orbital level (approximately –5.5 to –5.6) indicated the potential application of these polymers in organic photoelectronic fields.
