AbstractAlumina nanoparticles were successfully functionalized with a bi-functional coupling agent, (3-methacryloxypropyl)trimethoxysilane (MPS), through a facile neutral solvent method. MPS was found to be covalently bound with the nanoparticles. The linked MPS was polymerized with a vinyl-ester resin monomer through a free radical polymerization. Atomic force microscope phase images showed a uniform distribution of nanoparticles. Microtensile test results revealed the Young's modulus and strength increasing with particle loading. Microscopic examinations revealed the presence of large plastic deformations at the micron scale in the nanocomposites in agreement with the observed strengthening effect of functionalized nanoparticles. Thermo-gravimetric analysis (TGA) did not show any significant change in the thermal degradation of the nanocomposite as compared with the neat resin. The polymer matrix effectively protected the alumina nanoparticles from dissolution in basic and acidic solutions. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2006.
