Study of bicharged layered silicates and carbon nanotubes elastomeric composites

Project: PHD

Description

Recently, properties of elastomeric polymers (elasticity, fire resistance ...) were improved by the addiction of layered silicate in the polymer matrix. Carbon nanotubes have also many interesting properties (electrical, mechanical, thermal ...). The goal of the work is the study of a polymer/clay/NTC blend and deposition and/of grafting of this blend onto a metallic substrate with fonctionnalised alkoxysilanes monolayers.
