Hybrid nanomaterials hold promise for improved ceramic composites

Wright-Patterson AFB OH (AFNS) Sep 04, 2020
Researchers at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base are seeking to patent a novel process for manufacturing a type of material called preceramic polymer-grafted nanoparticles, or “hairy nanoparticles” (HNP). An HNP is a hybrid material consisting of a polymer shell bound to a solid nanoparticle core. The polymer – a chain of repeating molecules – forms the “hair” around the nanoparticle, which Source: NanoDaily.com Hybrid nanomaterials hold promise for improved ceramic composites
