dispersion, sonication, CNT, biopolymer, lignin, SEM

Abstract:
This project will utilize SEM and molecular modeling analysis to determine morphological consequences of presonication time on lignin particle size and the joint sonication of lignin with CNT. The investigation will yield a more fundamental understanding of the interactions between lignin and CNT. Currently, lignin provides a significant increase in mechanical strength to buckypaper; and so in this study structural analysis will proffer support for such mechanical improvement. Additionally, this study will provide a pathway to further improvements in mechanical strength and possibly other properties.
