- This study investigated differences in the thermo-mechanical properties of thermosetting polymer EPON 826 nanocomposites reinforced by modified nanofillers. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) were modified by environmentally friendly plasma treatments. Composites containing various nitrogen doped CNTs were investigated by morphological and structural analysis, which confirmed that they provided better dispersion and stronger interfacial interaction with the epoxy matrix. In addition, the dynamic mechanical behavior and thermal conductivity were analyzed to understand the energy transfer mechanism in the nanocomposites. The thermal and mechanical properties of the Inductively coupled plasma treated CNTs (ICP-CNT) reinforced nanocomposites containing a high concentration of quaternary and pyridinic types were higher than that of mechanical shear force plasma treated CNTs (MSF-CNT). A molecular dynamics (MD) simulation was performed to support the experimental results and confirmed that controlling the type of nitrogen doping groups was important for improving the thermo-mechanical characteristics of CNT/epoxy nanocomposites.
