Abstract

In this paper the mechanical properties including creep resistance of polypropylene nanocomposites with octadecylamine functionalized and reduced graphitic oxide. The properties are compared with other carbonaceous nanofillers. Generally an increase in the mechanical properties especially the creep resistance is observed. This could partly be explained by the increase in the degree of crystallization that occurs because of the nucleating effect of the nanofillers. Generally the best mechanical properties were achieved using octadecylamine functionalized and reduced graphitic oxide despite the lacks of complete exfoliation.
