Abstract Biodegradable polymers, including polybutylene adipate-co-terephthalate (PBAT), can replace traditional plastics to effectively target microplastic pollution; however, their high cost limits their application. In this study, vinyltrimethoxysilane (VTMS)-grafted lignin (VL) was prepared and incorporated into PBAT to reduce its cost and improve its mechanical properties while maintaining its biodegradability. Results show that the tensile strength, Young's modulus, and biodegradation effi...

Abstract Electromagnetic interference has become a serious pollution concern in modern society, which has significantly driven the development of lightweight electromagnetic interference shielding materials based on porous carbon/polymer nanocomposites. This work discusses the state-of-the-art methods for fabricating polymer foams and carbon foams, aerogels, and sponges for electromagnetic interference shielding. In order to obtain an ideal electromagnetic interference shielding effectiveness, i...

Abstract Biodegradable poly(lactic acid) (PLA) presents suitable physicochemical properties and biocompatibility for biomedical engineering. However, PLA has some drawbacks, such as low cell adhesion, biological inertness, low degradation rate, and acid degradation by-products. In this review, recent progress on strategies to address these problems is summarized, including novel fabrication techniques, high-performance PLA composites, and their applications for tissue engineering and drug delive...

Abstract Carbon nanomaterials are receiving worldwide attention because of their multi-faceted superiority in thermal conductivity, flame retardancy, mechanical stability, electrical conductivity, and biocompatibility. In this review, a survey of the literature on extending performance of epoxy resins based on carbon nanomaterials is presented. The structure-performance relationships for different carbon nanomaterials modified epoxy are closely analyzed. The performance extension in mechanical, ...

Hemp hurd is a bio-waste by-product with unique porous structure. The morphology and thermal properties of original hemp hurd and retted hemp hurd were investigated before the carbonization. Then the biomass carbon materials from hemp hurd and retted hemp hurd were activated by using CO2 or ZnCl2. The effect of physical activation and chemical activation on the properties of derived carbon was compared. The obtained activated carbons have been evaluated for CO2 capture. The results indicated tha...

Biodegradable foam for cushion packing materials was prepared with wood fiber and starch through mold foaming. This study investigated the effect of wood fiber size and content on the mechanical properties of the foam. The results showed the size and content of the wood fiber bearing significant influences on the density, compressive strength, and tensile strength of the resultant foams. Lower size of wood fiber aided in better foaming, and a 40 wt% of 125–180 μm wood fiber yielded the best mech...

Hemp hurd were used to prepare activated carbon with high surface area. The effect of CO activation and ZnCl activation on the properties of derived carbon was compared. The effect of ZnCl impregnation rate on the properties of activated carbon was also studied. The obtained activated carbons have been evaluated for CO capture. The results indicated that hemp hurd and retted hemp hurd have unique porous structure. The obtained activated carbons retained their porous structure. The activated carb...

Abstract Novel non-toxic halogen-free flame retardants are replacing traditional flame retardants in polymer and polymer matrix composite structures. In this study, graphene nanosheet (GNS) is investigated in combination with traditional layered double hydroxide (LDH), layered rare-earth hydroxide (LRH), and phosphorus-based flame retardant (DOPO) to enhance the flame retardancy of epoxy resin. A synergistic flame retardancy effect is achieved in GNS/LDH and GNS/DOPO systems where combined GNS a...

In this paper, the thermal stability and fire retardant behavior of epoxy resin (ER) composites filled with graphene nanosheets (GNS) and 9,10-dihydro-9-oxa-10-phosphaphenanthrene-10-oxide (DOPO) were investigated. Addition of GNS and DOPO changed the decomposition pathway of ER. During combustion, DOPO played a key flame retardancy role in the gas phase and the char enhancement in the condensed phase, while GNS played an effect in the condensed phase. Addition of 5 wt% GNS and DOPO separated, t...

The effects of graphene nanosheets (GNS) and layered double hydroxides (LDH) on morphology, flame retardancy and thermal degradation of epoxy resin (ER) were investigated. LDH was exfoliated in ER/GNS/LDH nanocomposites, while GNS was partially exfoliated and partially agglomerated into small clusters. Since not all of the GNS had good dispersion, the compactness and barrier properties of residual char in ER/GNS/LDH were inferior to ER/GNS and ER/LDH. However, the simultaneous addition of GNS an...
