Abstract

his paper outlines the synthesis of a novel sustainable nanocomposite and the investigation of its physicochemical and mechanical properties using micromechanical models. As a novel approach, palm oil fibres were treated with freshly prepared nanocopper sols to make them strong and sustainable. Nanocopper particle impregnated strong and durable fibres were used to develop a fibre reinforced unsaturated polyester resin nanocomposite. The composite behavior was investigated systematically by using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, thermogravimetric analysis, differential scanning calorimetry, etc. Among all of the composites tested, the nanocopper particle impregnated strong and durable fibre (30%) reinforced unsaturated polyester resin composite was demonstrated to have the highest mechanical strength. The change of weight gain follows typical Fickian diffusion behavior. To predict the strength of the nanocomposite, standard micromechanical models were analyzed and the trends were seen as mixed success. The observed properties of the developed nanocomposites indicate that they can be considered for indoor to outdoor applications.
