Data on Nanocomposites Reported by L. Manjunath and Colleagues (PMMA-cellulose acetate phthalate nanocomposites reinforced with silane-treated nanoclay)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Research findings on Nanocomposites are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting originating in Bangalore, India, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "A blend of cellulose acetate phthalate with poly (methyl methacrylate) has been developed by reinforcing it with silane-treated nanoclay."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research, "In order to enhance interactions between the nanoclay and blend components, maleic anhydride was added as the coupling agent. The mechanical properties were enhanced and were further analyzed by theoretical models."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The thermal properties and water absorption characteristics were also assessed."
