OBJECTIVES: To enable the students
• To understand the basics and chemistry of nano size materials and their synthesis, characterization and applications.
• To know the manufacturing and processing of clay/polymer nanocomposites.
• To learn about the flow behavior of nanofiller/polymer systems and their processing and applications.

UNIT I

9

General introduction to nanocomposites; Basics of Inorganic Materials Chemistry and Nanochemistry. Inorganic-Organic and Inorganic-Polymer Nanocomposite Materials.

UNIT II

9

Nanocomposites: particulate, clay, and carbon nanotube nanocomposites. Nanocomposite: synthesis, characterization, properties, and applications.


UNIT III

9

Clay/Polymer Nanocomposites: Physical and chemical properties of clayl nanoparticles; Synthesis; Potential Applications

UNIT IV

9

Metal/Polymer Nanocomposites: Physical and chemical properties of metal nanoparticles; Synthesis; Potential Applications. Carbon Nanotubes Polymer nanocomposites: Structure, Properties, Synthesis Methods; Potential Applications

UNIT V

9

Rheology and processing, Applications and economics of polymer nanocomposites.

TOTAL : 45 PERIODS

OUTCOMES:
Students would demonstrate a clear understanding of nanocomposites – clay/polymer nanocomposites, carbon nanotube polymer composites, and metal/polymer nanocomposites. They will be able to correlate the processing and economics of polymer nanocomposites compared to conventional polymer composites.
