Incorporation of rice hull derived silica in epoxy composites and evaluation of their mechanical properties
"Recent studies have shown that the incorporation of nano sized clay and silica can impart improved mechanical properties to composite materials. Rice hull is a major agricultural waste in rice producing countries; however, because of its high silica ([tilde]20% w/w) content, it can serve as an economical source of nano-sized amorphous silica. The present study was undertaken to explore the potential application of rice hull derived silica in epoxy composites"--Abstract, leaf iii.
