Abstract

In this research work, properties of graphene oxide (GO) based epoxy nanocomposites, prepared via the solution blending method, are elaborated. Different loadings (0.1-0.5 wt%) of GO were added into epoxy resin, and their effects were studied on their surface reaction, morphology, mechanical and thermal properties. It was found that a chemical modification, layer expansion and dispersion of filler within the epoxy matrix resulted in an improved interface bonding between the GO and epoxy matrix. The optimum amount of graphene nanostructures can be useful to improve the properties of epoxy nanocomposites for applications in adhesives to automotive.
