Preparation, Characterization and Study of Mechanical Properties of Graphene/ABS Nano-Composites


  • Dr. S. S. Bhatnagar University Institute of Chemical Engineering and Technology, Panjab University, Chandigarh − 160014, India


Graphene/acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (abs) Based Nanocomposite is Prepared Using Solvent Mixing Method. Abs has Outstanding Material Property and its Ease of Availability Motivated to Use it as a Polymer Material in the Present Work. Production of Graphene is Cheap Compared to that of Carbon Nanotubes and having Similar Mechanical Characteristics. its Incorporation in Abs will Improve its Mechanical Properties Significantly. Graphene is added to Abs in Variable Compositions (1, 2.5, 5, 7.5, 10 Wt %) and Chloroform is Used as Solvent.
