Advanced Materials Preparation and Properties

Advanced Materials Preparation and Properties

Some of the advanced materials are :

Carbon Fibres

→ The long chain cyclic structure of carbon is known as carbon fibres. These are stronger than steel, harder than titanium and lighter than aluminium. Due to less density and high tensile strength, these are of great importance.

Advanced Materials Preparation and Properties

→ Carbon fibres are formed by polymerisation of certain materials like rayon, polyacrylonitrile, gases such as methane, benzene etc. The structure of carbon fibres is as follows :

Uses of Carbon Fibres

Carbon fibres are of great importance in many fields. In Biology, as a component of bone plate, in artificial heart transplant etc. CFRP and CFRC are used in sports items like tennis and badminton racket. In frame of fast cyclers and cars etc. It is also used in protective materials and spacecrafts.
