Description/Abstract

To fully understand the reliable electrical properties of the nanocomposite films, their physical and chemical behaviors as well as dielectric properties were analyzed. Polyimide/TiO2 (PI/TiO2) nanocomposite films were prepared using in situ dispersion polymerization process. Influences of frequency, temperature and the nano-TiO2 particles loading concentration on dielectric permittivities of the PI/TiO2 nanocomposite films were studied. The dielectric relaxation behavior of the PI/TiO2 nanocomposite films has been investigated with dielectric relaxation spectrum. It was found that interfacial polarization, namely Maxwell–Wagner–Sillars, existed in the PI/TiO2 nanocomposite films with different loading concentration of the nano-TiO2 particles. Dielectric permittivities of the PI/TiO2 nanocomposite films fluctuation with temperature (−50–150 ◦C) were attributed to the mobility and thermal expansion of the polymer matrix, for which the Cole–Davidson model, or modified Cole–Cole model, was brought to account.
