Conductive Sheet Molding Compound with Carbon Based Nanomaterials

IntroductionGraphite is a layered material and the stiffest material found in nature--significantly higher than clay that could be displaced by this invention in related applications. Graphite has excellent electrical and thermal conductivity. MSU has developed an inexpensive process to produce exfoliated graphite nanoplatelets (xGnP) which when added...

Nano-layered Silicates with High Chemical Reactivity

IntroductionThe smectite family of layered silicate minerals, the so-called "swelling clays," have theoretical surface areas of 700 meters per gram or larger. However, accessing this surface area for important materials applications such as catalysis, adsorption, and polymer-clay nanocomposite formation is not readily achievable; the elementary...
