Summary:
Over 30% of commercial polymers are blends or alloys or one kind or another. Nanostructured blends offer the scientist or plastics engineer a new range of possibilities with characteristics including thermodynamic stablility; the potential to improve material transparency, creep and solvent resistance; the potential to simultaneously increase tensile strength and ductility; superior rheological properties; and relatively low cost. Nanostructured Polymer Blends opens up immense structural possibilities via chemical and mechanical modifications that generate novel properties and functions and high-performance characteristics at a low cost. The emerging applications of these new materials cover a wide range of industry sectors, encompassing the coatings and adhesives industry, electronics, energy (photovoltaics), aerospace and medical devices (where polymer blends provide innovations in biocompatible materials). This book explains the science of nanostructure formation and the nature of interphase formations, demystifies the design of nanostructured blends to achieve specific properties, and introduces the applications for this important new class of nanomaterial. All the key topics related to recent advances in blends are covered: IPNs, phase morphologies, composites and nanocomposites, nanostructure formation, the chemistry and structure of additives, etc. Introduces the science and technology of nanostructured polymer blends – and the procedures involved in melt blending and chemical blending to produce new materials with specific performance characteristics Unlocks the potential of nanostructured polymer blends for applications across sectors, including electronics, energy/photovoltaics, aerospace/automotive, and medical devices (biocompatible polymers) Explains the performance benefits in areas including rheological properties, thermodynamic stablility, material transparency, solvent resistance, etc.

Great progress has been made in the science and technology of polymer-based nanomaterials over the last decade. Nanostructured polymer systems have attracted much scientific and applied research interest. The last two decades have witnessed significant advances in polymer science and technology generally, but more so for polymer blends. The idea of blending two (or more) polymers, especially immiscible blends, has come with a lot of challenges. Achieving this has brought to the fore the art and science (and engineering) of

Nanofillers can play two important roles in polymer blends. The first is the improvement of various properties such as mechanical, barrier, thermal, flame retardancy, and electrical properties. The second is the modification of miscibility/compatibility and morphology of polymer blends. The mechanism of action of nanoparticles to modify the morphology, interfacial properties, and performance of immiscible polymer blends relies on their localization, their interactions with polymer components, and the way these additives disperse within the polymer blend. The objective of

In recent years there has been a great deal of research on the subject of nanostructured materials. Structure across a range of length scales has been of particular interest. Theoretical modeling of nanostructured formation in polymer blends has gained considerable momentum due to the increased interest in nanostructures, such as nanoparticles, nanotubes, nanopores, and so on. Polymers show universal behavior on long length and time scales. Usually, the size of an ideal polymer is calculated from the freely jointed polymer

The design of polymer blends constitutes an interesting alternative to obtaining micro- and nanostructured surfaces. The cost is reasonable and it is free from time-consuming procedures. Blending of polymers can yield materials with unprecedented properties that cannot be provided otherwise by using a single polymer. The free surface topography of polymer blend films, often related to phase domain structure, is critical to the applications. Two main aspects need to be considered in the preparation of multistructured blends: the interfaces involved

The engineering of nanostructured thermosets with different modifiers has generated significant interest, since improved overall properties are promised by good control over monodispersed microdomains. Incorporation of block copolymers and hyperbranched polymers are acknowledged as two efficient strategies to build up such nano/microcomposites, bearing distinct phase-segregating behaviors owing to respective unique architectures. In this chapter, we aim to illustrate the interplay between matrix and modifier from a perspective of thermodynamics. The two most common mechanisms of thermoset/block copolymer demixing

Until about 30 years ago all carbon-based polymers were regarded strictly as insulators, and hence were extensively utilized by the electronics industry for this very property. They have been used as inactive packaging and insulating material. This very narrow perspective has rapidly changed with the emergence of intrinsically conducting polymers. The combination of conventional polymers with conductive polymers or fillers is an important alternative to obtaining new polymeric materials with designed properties. Through the combination of conventional polymers with conductive polymers

Block copolymers (BCPs) consist of two or more chemically different polymers connected covalently, and are polymer alloys. Due to their thermodynamic incompatibility and chain connectivity, the phase separation between two (or more) blocks occurs only in a tens of nanometers range. Nanostructures are based on block copolymer self-assembly. They are functional nanomaterials less than 100nm in size and have received extensive scientific and technological attention due to their potential applications in electronic, biomedical, and optical materials.

The usefulness of any material, including nanocomposite polymer blends, depends on its degradability and durability. Thus, this chapter reviews the status of the research on degradation of nanocomposite polymer blends and, in particular, on clay-nanocomposite polymer blends, paying particular attention to both the role of the filler and the role of the blend morphology and composition. The results of recent research indicate that the clay has two opposing effects on the thermal stability of a nanocomposite polymer blend: (1) a promoter

Many nanostructured materials have been and are being prepared with increasing control over molecular configurations, conformations, and supramolecular assembly. These nanomaterials place an increasing challenge for characterization techniques to confirm the proposed structure and morphology. Several techniques are widely available, with increasing degrees of sophistication. Ideal techniques are those where the natural scale of the technique, such as radiation wavelength, matches that of the size scale of features in the material. In the case of nanostructured polymer blends the features

Polymer systems can be developed into a variety of functional forms to meet industrial and scientific applications. In general, they are presented in four common physical forms: (1) linear free chains in solution, (2) covalently or physically cross-linked reversible gels, (3) micro and nanoparticles, and (4) chains adsorbed or in surface-grafted form. Hydrogels are polymeric particles consisting of water-soluble polymer chains, chemically or physically connected using, in general, a cross-linking agent. These materials do not dissolve in water but may swell considerably in aqueous
