Polymer nanocomposites are materials in which hard nano-fillers are included inside a soft polymeric matrix. Thanks to the large surface-to-volume ratio of nanofillers, even very small amounts of fillers have a substantial impact on properties including toughness, yield strength, optical properties and electrical conductivity. However, the physico-chemical origin of this wide range of changing characteristics resulting from filler dispersion is not yet fully understood. Hasan Varols focuses on explaining, at the molecular level, the linear and non-linear elastic properties of industrial nanocomposites through the inclusion of nano-size silica fillers.
