Effect of calcination temperature of TiO2 on the crystallinity and the permittivity of PVDF-TrFE/TiO2 composites
Composite membranes of poly(vinylidene-trifluoroethylene)/titanium dioxide (PVDF-TrFE/TiO2) were prepared by the solution cast method. The crystallization behavior and dielectric properties of the composites with TiO2 calcined at different temperatures were studied. Transmission electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction (XRD) results showed that the TiO2 nanoparticles calcined at different temperatures were well dispersed in the polymer matrix and did not affect the structure of the PVDF-TrFE matrix. XRD and differential scanning calorimeter measurements showed that the crystallinity of PVDF-TrFE/TiO2 composites increased as the addition of TiO2 with different calcination temperatures. The dielectric property testing showed that the permittivity of PVDF-TrFE/TiO2 membrane increased rapidly with the increase of TiO2 content and the calcination temperature of TiO2 at constant TiO2 content, but the dielectric loss did not change much.
