Mechanical Property and Thermal Stability of Polyurethane Composites Reinforced with Polyhedral...

Mechanical properties and thermal stability of polyurethane composites were investigated with a combination of polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) molecules and inorganic barium sulfate. These hybrid composites were prepared using one-step method through the incorporation of flexible hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene prepolymer, reactive...

Bio-Based Hyperbranched Thermosetting Polyurethane/Triethanolamine Functionalized Multi-Walled...

Here, bio-based shape memory polymers have generated immense interest in recent times. Here, Bio-based hyperbranched polyurethane/triethanolamine functionalized multi-walled carbon nanotube (TEA-f-MWCNT) nanocomposites were prepared by in-situ pre-polymerization technique. The Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and the transmission electron...
