Functionalized graphene sheet filled silicone foam nanocomposites

Author affiliations


In this article we report the successful manufacture of a novel functionalized graphene sheet (FGS)/silicone porous nanocomposite. Both the cellular microstructure and the properties of the porous nanocomposite were investigated in detail. The thermal properties show great stability and heat dissipation efficiency, highlighting their potential in applications with intense thermal requirements. Additionally, compression measurements indicate that there was a favourable interaction between the graphene nanosheets and the polymer.
