Abstract

The nanocomposite of PMMA/ZnO was prepared by solution casting technique by dispersing ZnO nano particles at 4wt% of PMMA content. Dispersion of ZnO nanoparticles alters the structure of pure PMMA which is attributed through Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). Phase transition temperature, Young modulus, tensile strength, toughness and fracture strain are analyzed through stress strain curve ascertain through Dynamic Mechanical Analyzer (DMA). The study reveals that dispersion of nano ZnO expressively reformed the properties of pure PMMA.


Keywords
