237 Processing of Nanocomposites

Tuesday, October 30, 2012: 8:30 AM
Cambria East (Westin )
This session invites papers on various processing methods of nanocomposites. Processing is a critical factor in the formation of nanocomposites. Typical methods include in situ polymerization, melt compounding, and solution casting. New developments in the role of processing parameters and characteristics in influencing the morphology and properties of nanocomposites are welcome. Studies based on atypical processing methods, such as supercritical CO2 and plasma treatment, are encouraged.
