As nanocomposites composed of bio-based epoxy resins, bio-based hardeners, and nanofillers, polyglycerol polyglycidyl ether (PGPE) / ε-poly(L-lysine) (PL) / montmorillonite (MMT), glycerol polyglycidyl ether (GPE) / tannic acid (TA) / microfibrillated cellulose (MFC), and sorbitol polyglycidyl ether (SPE) / TA / MFC bio-nanocomposites were prepared by use of thermal curing reactions. Also, new bio-based nanocomposites composed of epoxidized soybean oil (ESO) and self-assembled hydroxystearic acid (HSA) nanofibers were prepared by use of photo-curing reaction. The thermal and mechanical properties and morphologies of the PGPE-PL/MMT, GPE-TA/MFC, SPE-TA/MFC, and ESO/HSA bio-nanocomposites were investigated in detail.

Keywords:   nanocomposites, bio-based epoxy resins, montmorillonite, microfibrillated cellulose, self-assembled nanofibers
