Abstract

Graphene has become one of the potential reinforcements for polymers because of its exceptional mechanical properties. The application of graphene nanocomposites in advanced engineering applications has attracted a lot of attention in recent years. It is considered that graphene could help to enhance the mechanical properties of epxoy at low loadings. Herein, the prepation and mechanical properties of epoxy/ graphene nanocomposites have been researched in general, the results show that graphene has significant reinforcement effect on epoxy matrix, along with that, the mechanism of this reinforcement has been discussed as well, which gives guidelines for preparing advanced epoxy/ graphene nanocomposites.
