About my work:
* Studied epoxy based Nano-composites of PES/Epoxy /Fumed silica prepared by melt mixing using internal mixers.
* Studied reaction induced phase separation in the blends of thermoset and thermoplastics polymers with thermoplastics as major component.
* Characterized composites using SEM, TEM, optical microscope, light scattering techniques, DSC, TGA, DMTA, WAXS, SAXS.
* Studied improvement in Mechanical and thermal properties measurement by modifying composites at nano-scale.
*"Investigation of microstructures and properties of polyethersulphone (PES)-cured epoxy system" (Presented at PPS-16, Sanghai, China, June 18-23 2000).
