Abstract

To diminish electromagnetic interference (EMI) for microwave radiations, effects of graphite (Gr) modified by a long alkyl chain ionic liquid (IL) 1-Butyl-3-methylimidazolium hydrogen sulphate ([BMIM][HSO4]) on poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF), was investigated. The pre-localized Gr coated polymer powders were fabricated, using solvent blending method, with different concentrations of Gr over PVDF matrix to prepare a series of PVDF/Gr/IL composites. The surface morphology of the fabricated composite films was examined by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The composites, with a thickness of ~0.15 mm, exhibit good EMI shielding properties, besides low cost production and flexibility. The enhanced properties are due to high ionic conductivity of the IL and formation of a connecting network by Gr facilitating electron conduction. Absorption is the key factor due to which the total shielding effectiveness in the frequency band of 12 to 18 GHz has been improved significantly.
