3 Preface CNPComp2013 continues a series of successful conferences on carbon based nanocomposites that originated from the European research network CNT-NET and has been organized every two years alternating between Hamburg and Cambridge, the base towns of the two main initiators of the conference series, Alan Windle and Karl Schulte. Due to the upcoming retirement of Karl Schulte, the conference 'moves up the Elbe river' and the meetings in Germany will be held in Dresden from now on. Again, the conference shall gather the international scientific community working in the field of carbon nanotube, graphene, or other nanocarbon filled composites. These materials are summarized as carbon nanoparticles (CNPs) which explains the change from the conference title CNTComp (so far) to CNPComp (starting in 2013). The conference provides the forum where the latest results and findings in the field will be presented and offers researchers from both academic institutions and industry a great opportunity to exchange knowledge, make contacts and engage in discussions. Participation of younger scientists, also with oral presentations, is explicitly encouraged. Topics Processing and characterisation of CNPs Dispersion in different matrices Surface treatment, functionalization, and interphase behaviour Preparation and processing of composites and blends Hybrid filler systems Hierarchical nano structured composites Modelling of CNPs and composites Properties: electrical, mechanical, thermal, and optical Applications

17 HIERARCHICAL NANOENGINEERED STRUCTURAL ADVANCED COMPOSITES - FUNDAMENTALS AND APPLICATIONS Prof. Brian L. Wardle Director, Nano-Engineered Composite aerospace STructures (NECST) Consortium NECSTlab, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA Nanostructured materials offer tremendous opportunity for re-inventing bulk materials, but there remain interesting challenges both in terms of characterization, design, processing, and scaling. The community has evolved towards architectures that rely on morphology-control of the nanoscale element, such as fibers that are organized at the nm-scale and extend to the m- and kmscales. Hierarchical architectures of nano and micro materials, combining top-down and bottomup processing, are showing the most technological promise (see Fig. 1). This presentation will focus on recent work developing nanoengineered hierarchical advanced structural (polymeric) composites with a special focus on enhancing mechanical properties, including in-plane strength. Examples are drawn from recent work and are presented in the context of extant work in the field. These hybrid advanced composites employ aligned nanowires (in our work, carbon nanotubes, CNTs) in several architectures to enhance laminate-level bulk properties of existing aerospace-grade advanced composites. Intrinsic and scale-dependent characteristics of the nanowires are used to engineer bulk property improvements focusing on critical laminate strengths such as open-hole compression (OHC) and tension bearing. Nanocomposites, as a representative volume element (RVE) of such hierarchical assemblies, are studied to understand their contribution(s) to bulk properties. Building multifunctionality into laminates beyond the mechanical property improvements includes thermal and electrical conductivity enhancement for damage detection and ice protection, among others. Such multifunctional attributes of nanoengineered laminates are progressing these technologies in terms of scale and adoption. In the direction of multifunctionality, tailoring of properties at the nanoscale can also be used to tailor active materials and materials for energy storage and transport. Case examples from recent polymer nanocomposite work on electoactive polymer actuators and supercapacitors suggest additional tailoring opportunities in other even more diverse fields, e.g., biomems (microelectromechanical systems).

22 K2 CHEMICAL FUNCTIONALIZATION OF SYNTHETIC CARBON ALLOTROPES Andreas Hirsch University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Department of Chemistry and Pharmacy and Institute of Advanced Materials and Processes (ZMP), Henkestrasse 42, Erlangen, Germany Chemical functionalization of new C-allotropes is of fundamental interest and opens the door to unprecedented materials applications. In principle, the physical and chemical properties of fullerenes, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and graphene are related to each other, although their levels of development vary considerably. In order to efficiently explore the reactivity of the less developed CNTs and especially that of graphene it is our goal to provide a unifying approach for the chemistry of all three new carbon allotropes. The fullerenes present the first family of synthetic carbon allotropes. Since their availability in macroscopic quantities numerous investigations with respect to their physical characterization and chemical functionalization have been carried out. CNTs - the second new family of C-allotropes - exhibit at least the same potential for unprecedented applications. Their chemistry, however, is much less developed. Although many protocols for covalent and non-covalent CNT functionalization have been published there are still many fundamental problems to be solved. This includes inter alia the highly selective functionalization of metallic- or semiconducting SWNTs, the high throughput isolation of SWNTs with single helicity, the development of general concepts allowing for tunable doping of individualized tubes with single helicity or least defined transport characteristics (metallic semiconductive). Finally, the youngest representative in the list of new C-allotropes is graphene and the exploration of its chemistry has just begun to start. So far only investigation on the functionalization of defect rich graphene oxide (GO) but not intact graphene itself have been published. Compared to the various flavours of CNTs (broad variation of helicities, single walled, multi walled) graphene is a much more uniform material. This will facilitate the development of its chemistry considerably. We will present a series of new results of covalent and non-covalent functionalizations of fullerenes, carbon nanotubes and graphene.

23 K3 DOES GRAPHENE CHANGE T G OF POLYMER NANOCOMPOSITES? Ken-Hsuan Liao 1,3, Shigeru Aoyama 1,4, Shingo Kobayashi 1,5, Hyunwoo Kim 1,6, Ahmed Abdala 2,7, Christopher W. Macosko 1 1 Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA 2 Department of Chemical Engineering, The Petroleum Institute, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates 3 DuPont Central Research & Development, Experimental Station, Wilmington, Delaware, USA 4 Toray Industries, Films & Film Products Research Laboratories, 1-1, Sonoyama 1- chome, Otsu, Shiga, Japan 5 Department of Chemistry, Yamagata University, Yamagata, Japan 6 Dow Chemical, Midland, Michigan 7 Department of Chemical Engineering and Petroleum Refining, Faculty of Petroleum and Mining Engineering, Suez University, Suez, Egypt Some researchers have reported a large increase in polymer glass transition with the addition of graphene. For example Brinson and coworkers [Nature Nano. 2008] reported an increase in Tg for polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) of 29 C with 0.05 wt% of thermally reduced graphene oxide (TRG). However, others report much smaller or even no increase in Tg even at much higher loading. To resolve this conflict we have repeated the literature experiments. TRG and also pristine graphene (PG) were combined with isotactic PMMA (i-pmma) and syndiotactic-rich atactic PMMA (a-pmma) by solvent blending in THF. PMMA/TRG composites were also formed by in situ polymerization of MMA monomer in THF. A broad literature survey summary agrees with our results. We found no changes in Tg for over 20 different graphene/polymer nanocomposites synthesized via physical blending processes such as solvent or melt blending, except aqueous blending. In contrast, chemical blending processes such as in situ polymerization or chemically modified fillers yielded significant Tg increases in graphene/polymer nanocomposites. The results are caused by interfacial interactions between matrix polymers and fillers. Physical blending such as solvent blending processes cannot provide enough interaction at the interfaces, whereas chemical blending processes such as in situ polymerization can yield strong covalent bonds. Aqueous blending of graphene oxide or reduced graphene oxide nanocomposites with water soluble matrix polymers also cause Tg increases, even though the blending processes involve no chemical reactions. The reason for this exception is that hydrogen bonds form between oxygen groups on graphene and water soluble matrix polymers.

24 K4 PROCESSING OF COMPOSITES AND BLENDS CONTAINING CARBON BASED NANOPARTICLES Tony McNally WMG, University of Warwick, UK Despite almost two decades of research on composites of carbon nanoparticles and polymers, their widespread exploitation has yet to be fully realised. This in the main is a consequence of the combined challenges of achieving effective dispersion and distribution of nanoparticles in polymer melts and of fully characterizing and modelling the interface between particle and polymer. The parameters which govern nanoparticle dispersion during melt mixing have been studied intensively for a small number of polymer/cnt systems and less so for composites of polymers and graphene. CNT dispersion in polymer melts follows three distinct mechanisms; infiltration of the melt into CNT primary agglomerates, agglomerate rupture and erosion of CNTs from agglomerate surfaces, all governed by the melt temperature and forces acting on the melt during mixing. Typically, the relationship between varying processing parameters and nanoparticle dispersion is investigated using a combination of microscopic techniques and interpreted by assessing nanoparticle network formation from electrical and rheological data. Processing variables as well as thermodynamic considerations play a role in the localization of CNTs in immiscible polymer blends. The majority of the published literature has focused on understanding the factors which effect nanoparticle dispersion during mixing. However, the as-extruded composite or blend can then experience a second thermo-mechanical cycle as in injection moulding. Furthermore, secondary processing in the solid state and quasi-solid state, as in thermoforming, of composites of polymers and carbon nanoparticles has largely been ignored. Efforts are also on-going to improve nanoparticle dispersion by using a combination of processing techniques, including using a three roll mill after melt mixing in a twin screw extruder. The presentation will provide an overview of processing of composites polymers and carbon based nanoparticles, with a focus on carbon nanotubes.
