Polyphenylene sulfide (PPS): state of the art and applications

Ashok S. Rahate / Kailash Rambhau Nemade / Sandeep A. Waghuley
Published Online: 2013-09-21 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/revce-2012-0021

Abstract

Polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) is a versatile material that gives extruded and molded components the ability to meet exceptionally demanding criteria. This semicrystalline engineering thermoplastic has outstanding thermal stability, superior toughness, inherent flame resistance, and excellent chemical resistance. It also has high mechanical strength, impact resistance, and dimensional stability as well as good electrical properties. The present review outlines the synthesis methods, characterizations, and electrical and dielectric properties of PPS composite. Its structural and morphological characteristics, studied for advanced applications such as photovoltaic cells, gas sensors, and supercapacitors, are in prospect. In the composite phase, the electric and dielectric properties of PPS are found to be improved.

Keywords: polyphenylene sulfide; synthetic metal; transport properties
