Abdul Khalil, H. P. S. and Jawaid, Mohammad and Firoozian, Parisha and Zainudin, Edi Syams and Md. Tahir, Paridah (2013) Dynamic mechanical properties of activated carbon–filled epoxy nanocomposites. International Journal of Polymer Analysis and Characterization, 18 (4). pp. 247-256. ISSN 1023-666X; ESSN: 1563-5341


Nano-activated carbons obtained from oil palm empty fiber bunch (AC-EFB), bamboo stem (AC-BS), and coconut shells (AC-CNS) were reinforced in epoxy matrix to fabricate epoxy nanocomposites. The dynamic mechanical analysis of epoxy nanocomposites was carried out, and 5% AC-CNS treated with KOH-filled epoxy composites displayed the highest storage modulus of all the activated carbon–filled epoxy composites. The incorporation of a small amount of AC-BS, AC-EFB, and AC-CNS to the epoxy matrix enhanced the damping characteristics of the epoxy nanocomposites. The 5% AC-EFB treated with H3PO4 filled epoxy composites showed the highest glass transition temperature (Tg) in all temperature ranges.
