New Findings on Chemical Engineering Described by Investigators at National Research Center

February 12, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Engineering -- New research on Chemical Engineering is the subject of a report. According to news reporting out of Cairo, Egypt, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "The permittivity epsilon' and dielectric loss epsilon '' were measured for NBR/EPDM blends (50/50) at different frequencies and at room temperature (30 degrees C). Three types of nano scaled carbon blacks, which were investigated by TEM, were added to such blends."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from National Research Center, "At certain concentration of carbon black, a sharp increase was noticed in the dielectric parameters and electrical conductivity. This increase reflects the network formation, which was confirmed through SEM investigation and the applicability of various conductivity models."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The mechanical investigation was also carried out for the composites under investigations."
