What is it about?
Herein, we report the influence of three different nanocellulose types, varying in the derivatization method, source, and aspect ratio, on the mechanical properties and thermal transformations of solution-spun PAN/nanocellulose nanocomposite fibers into carbon fibers. The incorporation of 0.1 wt % nanocellulose into solution-spun PAN fibers led to a 7–19% increase in tensile modulus and 0–27% increase in tensile strength in the solution-spun fibers, compared to a control PAN fiber.
Why is it important?
The reinforcement of the polyacrylonitrile (PAN) precursor fiber using nanoadditives offers a unique strategy to improve the mechanical performance of carbon fiber.
