Abstract The aim of this study was to prepare cellulose nanowhiskers (CNWs) from wastepaper powder (WPP), as an environmentally friendly approach for obtaining the source material, which is a highly available and low-cost precursor for cellulose nanomaterial processing. Acid hydrolysis and calcification treatments were employed for extraction of CNWs and preparation of novel phospho-calcified cellulose nanowhiskers (PCCNWs). CNWs and PCCNWs were analyzed through optical microscopy (OM), scanning...

Biocompatible and biodegradable polyurethanes (PUs) based on polycaprolactone diol (PCL) were prepared and filled with cellulose nanowhiskers (CNWs) obtained from wastepaper. The incorporated polyurethane nanocomposites were used to prepare foamed scaffolds with bimodal cell sizes through solvent casting/particulate leaching method. Sodium chloride and sugar porogens were also prepared to fabricate the scaffolds. The mechanical and thermal properties of PU/CNW nanocomposites were investigated. I...

Abstract Nowadays, the discovery of cell behaviors and their responses in communication with the stem cell niches and/or microenvironments are one of the major topics in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. In this study, incorporated organic-inorganic polyurethane (PU) nanocomposites were prepared for better understanding of cell signaling and the effect of magnetite nanoparticles on cell proliferation and cell responses. The properties of PU-IONs were evaluated by fourier transform in...

Abstract Carbon fiber-reinforced composites were manufactured by hot pressing stacked carbon fiber prepregs using graphene oxide (GO)-modified epoxy resin as the matrix. Tetrahydrofuran was used as the solvent to disperse GO in the epoxy resin. Results showed that a homogeneous GO-modified epoxy system could be obtained, which was stable for approximately 3 h, long enough to produce the prepreg. The incorporation of 0.10 wt% GO into the epoxy resin achieved the largest interlaminar shear strengt...

Abstract Graphene is a new and exciting material that has attracted much attention in the last decade and is being extensively explored because of its properties, which have been described with so many superlatives. Production of graphene for large scale application is still a major challenge. Top-down graphene exfoliation methods from graphite, such as liquid-phase exfoliation which is promising because of low cost and high scalability potential will be briefly discussed. We also analyze the ch...

Development of natural fiber composites with thermoplastics and thermosets finds applications in various fields, from agriculture to automotive. It can reduce the dependency on petroleum resources which causes several environmental problems. Natural fibers are renewable and biodegradable that reduces carbon footprint to the environment. Coir fibers are natural fibers used in the development of composites offers comparable properties with other mineral fillers. This article reviews different meth...

Abstract Interesting behavior is observed in the electrical resistance across the thickness of glass fibers/epoxy/carbon nanotubes (CNTs) laminate when the laminate is subjected to uniaxial stress along its length. Normally, when a tensile stress is applied along the length of the laminate, Poisson coupling would result in a decrease in the thickness of the laminate. One may expect that this would give rise to smaller electrical resistance across the thickness of the laminate due to the smaller ...

We investigated the effect of graphene nanoplatelets (GnPs) with two different lateral dimensions on the morphology, flexural, and thermo-mechanical properties of multiscale GnPs/glass fiber/epoxy composites. First, 3 and 5 wt% of GnP-C750 (<1 µm in diameter) and GnP-5 (5 µm in diameter) were individually integrated into epoxy suspension through a combination of calendaring and sonication processes. The GnPs/glass fiber/epoxy composites were then fabricated by incorporating glass fibers into the...

Abstract There is an increasing demand for high performance composites with enhanced mechanical and electrical properties. Carbon nanofibres offer a promising solution but their effectiveness has been limited by difficulty in achieving directional alignment. Here we report the use of an alternating current (AC) electric field to align carbon nanofibres in an epoxy. During the cure process of an epoxy resin, carbon nanofibres (CNFs) are observed to rotate and align with the applied electric field...

Graphene oxide (GO) nanosheets were simultaneously modified and reduced with ethylenediamine (EDA). Then, EDA-treated GO (RGO-NH2) was exposed to iterative alkylation and amidation reactions to synthesize poly(amidoamine) (PAMAM)-grafted GO nanosheets. Reactions were continued until 4th generation PAMAM was grafted onto GO layers (RGO-4.0GD). FT-IR results confirmed the synthesis of the different structures, while TGA curves showed that the reactions that occurred were non-ideal and PAMAM was no...

Abstract The main objective of this work was to find a way to increase the bio-applicability of graphene oxide (GO) nanoparticles. In this way, various kinds of graphene oxide-chitosan (GO-CS) nano-hybrids were synthesized through attachment of different kinds of chitosan (CS) structures with GO. Subsequently, they were assessed in terms of structural characterization, antibacterial activity and cytotoxicity to obtain a hybrid structure representing the highest bactericidal and biocompatibility ...
