Mechanical and Thermal Properties of Clay-poly(norbornene) Nanocomposites from Ruthenium Alkylidene-mediated Surface-initiated Polymerization
Keywords: polymer nanocomposite, surface-initiated polymerization, metal-mediated ring-opening metathesis polymerization
AbstractIn this work, the mechanical and thermal properties of nanocomposite films prepared from the surface-initiated polymerization of norbornene mediated by a surface-bound ruthenium alkylidine catalyst were investigated. Thermal gravimetric and dynamic mechanical analyses revealed enhanced properties of the resulting nanocomposite films over that of the unfilled polymer.
