  • Patent number: 9902819
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a nanocomposite includes exposing dry nanoparticles to a dry, solid matrix material or pellets in a container to form a combination which is then agitated by rotating about an axis transverse to a direction of gravity, at room temperature and without grinding objects, to cause a tumbling action between the pellets and the nanoparticles to thereby evenly disperse and coat the nanoparticles directly on outer surfaces of the pellets which remain in a solid phase and of the same size throughout rotating. The method also includes processing the resulting combination, particularly polypropylene pellets and carbon black nanoparticles, by heating to form a viscous combination which is then drawn to form a nanocomposite fiber having carbon black nanoparticles dispersed evenly throughout the polypropylene, with a resulting fiber having a diameter of 30 ?m-100 ?m and tensile strength of 300-1500% greater than a similar polypropylene fiber produced without the nanoparticles.

  • Patent number: 9276139
    Abstract: A polyimide film which rarely undergoes the formation of bubbles, blisters or the like, even when heated to a high temperature; and a production method and a production apparatus for the polyimide film. The polyimide film production apparatus includes a support body, a cast furnace and a cure furnace, wherein the cure furnace is partitioned into multiple zones so that the temperature of a self-supporting film can be increased in a stepwise manner, and an infrared electric heater, which is disposed at a predetermined distance from the film, is arranged in a zone for heating the atmosphere of the self-supporting film to a temperature of 450° C. or higher on the upper surface side and/or the lower surface side of the self-supporting film. The polyimide production apparatus enables the production of a polyimide film which has a volatile content of 0.1 mass % or less after being heated at 450° C. for 20 minutes.

  • Patent number: 8298610
    Abstract: This invention provides processes for inhibiting the formation of copper oxides on substantially oxide-free copper surfaces by contacting a substantially oxide-free copper surface with a bifunctional ligand that contains both a metal-coordinating group and a tertiary amine group in an aqueous solution of pH about 2 to about 5.5. A thin layer of the bifunctional ligand formed by coordination of the dialkylaminoacetonitrile to the copper surface can be removed by heating under vacuum to regenerate a substantially oxide-free copper surface.
