Abstract

High-density polyethylene nanocomposites with hydroxy-hepta(iso-butyl)-octasilsesquioxane (POSS‑(i-Bu)7OH) and hydroxy-hepta(iso-octyl)-octasilsesquioxane (POSS‑(i-Oct)7OH) as nanofillers were prepared by melt blending. The morphological, thermal and mechanical properties as well as processability of obtained nanocomposites were characterized. POSS nanofillers were homogenously dispersed in polymeric matrix. High compatibility between nanofiller and polymer induced enhanced thermal stability, Charpy impact strength and melt flow rate for composite materials. POSS particles acted also as a nucleating agent for polyethylene crystallization in the nanocomposite.
