Project title: Highly thermally conductive electrically insulating polymer composites as thermal interface materials

 

Especially in recent years, thermally conductive electrically insulating polymer composites are becoming extremely important as heat-dissipation electronic packaging materials and/or thermal interface materials for packaging LED, printed circuit boards, chips, solar cells, generators, motors and power modules etc.

This project aims to develop new highly effective thermal interface materials using novel boron nitride nanomaterials as fillers, including synthesis of novel boron nitride nanomaterials, functionalization and polymer composite fabrication and characterization etc.
