Fabrication and characterization of boron carbide/polymethyl methacrylate composites: Fullerenes, Nanotubes and Carbon Nanostructures: Vol 0, No 0



The composites reported on this work had been ready from poly (methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) as polymeric matrix and boron carbide nanoparticles as filler utilizing answer casting technique. The synthesized composites had been characterised utilizing common testing machine, thermogravimetry, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The impact of filler focus on the varied key properties of the resultant composites was investigated. The outcomes revealed that by rising the focus of the filler, the mechanical energy and thermal stability elevated. The outcomes indicated that filler when utilized in 20 wt% focus brought on enhancements within the thermal and mechanical properties of the composite together with Younger’s modulus and tensile energy. The composites ready utilizing filler in optimum focus (20 wt%) had been additional characterised utilizing FTIR, XRD and SEM. The outcomes inferred that the synthesized composites might obtain candidature to be used in numerous purposes.
