Transparent polycarbonate nanocomposites
Project topic: Transparent polycarbonate nanocomposites
Recent research indicates that incorporation of nanofillers into polymers can enhance a wide range of physical and engineering properties of the polymer. It is considered that the combat survivability could be improved by extending the protective area of nanostructured materials for personal protection. The idea may not be achievable in the past since the candidate materials are not available. The recent development of polymer nanocomposites has opened up this opportunity. However, the addition of nanofillers has significant influence on the transparency of the polymer. In this project, the effect of nanofillers on the transparency of polycarbonate will be investigated.
