On the influence of xylene on the dielectric response of an organoclay-containing nanocomposite

On the influence of xylene on the dielectric response of an organoclay-containing nanocomposite
On the influence of xylene on the dielectric response of an organoclay-containing nanocomposite
The dielectric effect, investigated using dielectric spectroscopy and DC dielectric breakdown strength measurements, of introducing xylene into a composite system containing polyethylene, a co-polymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate and an organoclay can be understood in light of X-ray diffraction data. Although organoclay alone changes the dielectric response of the polymer blend and xylene has little to no effect on the unfilled polymer blend, when both xylene and organoclay are present a synergistic response is revealed. This work was undertaken in order to examine the generality of the possible effects of labile, low molar mass impurities on electrical properties of comparable systems, which may be processed through solvent-based routes.

Abstract

The dielectric effect, investigated using dielectric spectroscopy and DC dielectric breakdown strength measurements, of introducing xylene into a composite system containing polyethylene, a co-polymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate and an organoclay can be understood in light of X-ray diffraction data. Although organoclay alone changes the dielectric response of the polymer blend and xylene has little to no effect on the unfilled polymer blend, when both xylene and organoclay are present a synergistic response is revealed. This work was undertaken in order to examine the generality of the possible effects of labile, low molar mass impurities on electrical properties of comparable systems, which may be processed through solvent-based routes.
