Directions of investigations

Physically-chemical mechanisms of interactions in the interface of nanocomposites and nanomaterials:- atomic bonds and physical phenomena in the interface area.

Influence of external fields and corrosive media on the physical properties of nanocomposites and nanomaterials.

Ways of expansion of the functionality of nanocomposites and nanomaterials.

Development and creation of stable reinforced functional and constructional polymer composite materials.

 

Main results for the recent years

Rise of thermal stability of unsaturated polyester resin composites with SiO2- nanoparticles realizes at low filler content and its mechanism consists in a fastening of polymer chains by ester carbonyl group with particle’s active surface sites.

In composites of unsaturated polyester resin with micro- and nanosilica fillers the thermal stability of material with any concentration of micro filler depends on the nanoparticle content and the thermal stability enhancement accompanies a reduction in the ultimate strength.

In composites of unsaturated orthophthalic polyester resin with SiO2- nanoparticles the origin of chemical bond on the nanoparticle-polymer interface defines a dielectrical permittivity behavior. Electron density growth on the particle surface due to formation of chemical bonds between atoms of macromolecule and surface sites results in a varying of chain conformation and a diminish of charge density in the polymer-nanopore interface.

Concentration effect of silica nanoparticles in polyester resin composites reveals in: the nonmonotonic thermal destruction of polymer chains when that of styrene cross-links a smoothly reduces; the nonmonotonic reduction of polarity of all macromolecule atomic bonds; the nonmonotonic behavior of dielectrical permittivity, positronium lifetime nanopore content. In the epoxy- nanosilica composites a rise of filler content leads to nonmonotonic behavior of swelling and strength properties.

Waffle structures with load-bearing framework which have the high mechanical parameters and slight adsorption of electromagnetic emission were developed and created.
