Preparation and characterisation of polymer composites with bloodmeal
(University of the Free State (Qwaqwa Campus), 2016-01)
This research focuses on the fabrication of composites produced by the combination of BM (bloodmeal) with HOPE (high-density polyethylene). HOPE was chosen because it is amongst the most widely used synthetic plastic ...
Preparation and characterisation of biodegradable polymer nanocomposites with magnesium hydroxide (Mg(OH)2) and functionalized titania (f-TiO2) nanoparticles as fillers
(University of the Free State, 2018-06)
Magnesium hydroxide (Mg(OH)2) (1, 3, 5 and 10 wt.%) and (3-aminopropyl)-trimethoxysilane functionalized titania (APTMS-TiO2) (1, 3 and 5 wt.%) nanoparticles were added to PLA, PCL and their blends (70/30, 50/50 and 30/70) ...
