Hybrid films prepared from latex particles incorporating metal oxide nanoparticles

Hybrid films prepared from latex particles incorporating metal oxide nanoparticles Metal oxide (ZrO2) nanoparticle-dispersed polymer films (hybrid latex films) were prepared from polymer particles incorporating ZrO2 nanoparticles (hybrid latex dispersion). The hybrid latex dispersions were synthesized by miniemulsion polymerization. The resulting films were transparent, and they derived their properties from the ZrO2 nanoparticles. The refractive indexes of the films increased with the ZrO2 content. Surface-modified ZrO2 nanoparticles were dispersed successfully in a polymer matrix containing phosphoric acid groups, which interacts with the surfaces of the ZrO2 nanoparticles and increases the compatibility between the polymer and ZrO2. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Research on Chemical Intermediates Springer Journals

Abstract

Metal oxide (ZrO2) nanoparticle-dispersed polymer films (hybrid latex films) were prepared from polymer particles incorporating ZrO2 nanoparticles (hybrid latex dispersion). The hybrid latex dispersions were synthesized by miniemulsion polymerization. The resulting films were transparent, and they derived their properties from the ZrO2 nanoparticles. The refractive indexes of the films increased with the ZrO2 content. Surface-modified ZrO2 nanoparticles were dispersed successfully in a polymer matrix containing phosphoric acid groups, which interacts with the surfaces of the ZrO2 nanoparticles and increases the compatibility between the polymer and ZrO2.
