Processability, curing dynamics, network formation, and thermal stability of cyanate ester resin (CY) nanocomposites with triSilanolphenyl polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS), natural montmorillonite clay (Na+), MT2EtOH (methyl, tallow, bis-2-hydroxyethyl, ternary ammonium) modified clay (30B), 2M2HT (dimethyl, dihydrogenatedtallow, quaternary ammonium) modified clay (20A), carbon nanotubes (CNTs) were studied by means of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), modulated temperature differential scanning calorimetry (MTDSC), X-ray diffraction (XRD), field emission gun scanning electron microscopy (FEG-SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) and Raman spectroscopies. For comparison, the influence of the nanofillers on processability, curing dynamics, network formation, and thermal stability of a benzoxazine resin (BEN) were studied as well.
