Linseed oil-based alkyd/Cu2O nanocomposite coatings

It is well-known that hyperbranched alkyd polymers offer many advantages, such as reduced viscosity, multifunctional terminals, and absence of gelation. Researchers first synthesized linseed-oil (LO) alkyd resin by the polyesterification of polyester and unsaturated fatty acids of LO. Then, different concentrations of single-crystal Cu2O nanocube fillers bounded mainly with {100} facets which were synthesized by wet chemical technique at RT without using any surfactant or template were incorporated into the as-synthesized LO alkyd resin to investigate the effects of nanofiller dispersion on physicomechanical and anticorrosion properties. The results showed that by increasing Cu2O nanofiller loading concentrations up to 0.5%, mechanical and anticorrosion properties of the composites were improved.
