Single-purpose greenhouse films such as UV-blocking, NIR-blocking, or ultrathermic films are commonly developed in various climate regions. However, multifunctional films of combined functions are rarely explored, especially in the tropical regions. In this research, a multifunctional film having high UV filtration, high NIR reflection, and good light diffusion was developed for a greenhouse cover application in tropical regions. Effects of type, quantity, and particle size of additives on optic...

Abstract Polylactic acid (PLA) is a biobased product and a compostable aliphatic polyester that has been studied for use in several applications over the last decade. Many properties of PLA, such as strength, stiffness, and gas permeability, have been found to be comparable to those of traditional petrochemical-based polymers. However, PLA-based materials exhibit a number of limitations for specific applications, such as slow biodegradation rate, high cost, and low toughness. The modification of...

Currently, greenhouses are widely used for the cultivation of various crops. However, in tropical and subtropical regions, undesired near-infrared radiation (NIR) causes heat loads inside the greenhouse. Recent works have demonstrated that radiative cooling, releasing energy via radiative heat exchange where the heat is dumped directly into outer space, can be achieved by using silica particles designed to emit in the infrared atmospheric transparency window. The purpose of this study is to impr...

Abstract In this work, the organo-montmorillonites (OMt): non polar Cloisite15A and polar Cloiste30B, epoxy functionalized graphene (EFG) and OMt/EFG mixture were adopted as property enhancers for a blend based on poly(lactic acid) (PLA) and poly(butylenes adipate- co -terephthalate) (PBAT). Blends of PLA/PBAT, OMt-PLA/PBAT, EFG-PLA/PBAT and OMt/EFG-PLA/PBAT were prepared, through the melt-blending technique. The morphological, interfacial, rheological and mechanical properties of the different ...

Abstract Two-dimensional hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) has excellent and useful mechanical and thermal properties, and can be used as a novel filler to enhance the thermal conductivity of polymer composites. We prepared exfoliated h-BN nanoplatelets (BNNP) with hydroxyl functional groups using a hydroxide-assisted ball milling process, and demonstrated the enhanced thermal conductivity of its epoxy nanocomposites. The prepared BNNP are highly soluble and retain their in-plane structure. The die...

AbstractIn this article, the phase separation in the melt blended polycarbonate (PC) and ethylene propylene copolymer (EPC) has been studied with dynamic mechanical thermal analysis (DMTA) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Two glass transition temperatures on the tan δ curves were detected. This confirms the immiscibility of PC and EPC phases. Different content of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were added to the PC/EPC blends and the interfacial adhesion between MWCNTs and PC/EPC b...

Abstract The incorporation of CNTs into the immiscible blends are increasingly attractive because of high performance, its wide application and great prospects for development in the future. The objective of this review focuses on CNTs toughened immiscible polymer blends based on the selective localization of CNTs in the immiscible blends. Firstly, the thermodynamic and kinetic factors that determines the localization of CNTs are introduced. The former is relative to the wetting coefficient that...

Abstract null null Films with ultraviolet (UV) and near-infrared (NIR) blocking properties can be used to protect against UV and heat radiation, thus prolonging the operating life of photovoltaic devices. Being wide band-gap semiconductors, ZnO films can absorb UV light and antimony doped tin oxide (ATO) films can play the role of defending against the NIR light with low electrical resistivities. In this work, the bilayer films of ZnO overlayed by ATO are sputtered by radio-frequent (r.f.) magne...
