Dielectric materials with high thermal conductivity (TC) can enable disruptive performance enhancement in the areas of electronics packaging, thermal management, energy storage, cabling, and heat sinks. There have been widespread global efforts over the past decade on developing novel nanocomposite dielectric materials. As a baseline, legacy polymers and epoxies used in the abovementioned applications have very low thermal conductivities ranging from 0.1–0.5 $\text{W}\cdot \text{m}^{-1} \cdot \text{K}^{-1}$ . Recent advances have led to the commercial availability of polymeric materials with thermal conductivities approaching 10 $\text{W}\cdot \text{m}^{-1} \cdot \text{K}^{-1}$ . Importantly, several fundamental studies report novel nanocomposites with thermal conductivities $>50\,\,\text{W}\cdot \text{m}^{-1} \cdot \text{K}^{-1}$ . This article summarizes progress in the development of such materials with a focus on developments that show promise for improved practical dielectrics. This review highlights that high TC alone is inadequate to characterize the suitability of any material for the above applications. Other thermal properties, such as thermal diffusivity, glass transition temperature, and the ratio of the in-plane to out-of-plane TC, are important to quantify the thermal performance of novel nanocomposites. In addition, characterization and understanding of mechanical properties (coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE), tensile strength and elastic modulus) and electrical properties (dielectric strength and dielectric permittivity) are critical for holistic multifunctional assessments of these materials. There are other parameters and properties that influence performance, life, and manufacturability, such as viscosity and moisture absorption. This study reviews all the above aspects of nanocomposite dielectric materials reported in the literature. More specifically, we analyze various filler-polymer combinations, and the influence of approaches to incorporate fillers in the polymer on the thermal, mechanical, and electrical properties. While the addition of fillers leads to huge enhancements in TC, the TC is highly anisotropic, with out-of-plane TC lower than in-plane TC by an order of magnitude. It is seen that most present-day materials are still inadequate for future applications due to their low glass transition temperatures; specific promising materials are highlighted. While the addition of fillers reduces the CTE, further reduction is needed to favorably improve the mechanical performance of these materials. While the electrical insulating properties of these composite materials are adequate, there is very little data reported on other electrical properties. In summary, while there is an understandable focus on enhancing the TC, other properties are underreported, and there is insufficient information to support the assessment of most novel materials for practical applications. Overall, this study summarizes the state-of-the-art dielectric nanocomposites and outlines directions for future research to bridge the gap between basic materials science and applications.

Thermophysical and dielectric properties of polymer composites based on linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) and polylactide (PLA) filled with hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) have been studied. It is found that all the studied composites possess dielectric properties and increased thermal conductivity compared with initial polymer matrices. Unlike carbon-containing fillers (carbon black, graphite, graphene, carbon nanotubes), hBN is a good insulator and therefore, it is more suitable as a filler for the manufacture of heat-releasing materials with purely white appearance. At the same time, both LLDPE/hBN and PLA/hBN composites with a filler content of 40 wt.% possess comparable thermal conductivity about 0.7 W·m–1·K–1, which is almost 95% and 250% higher, than those for the initial LLDPE and PLA, respectively.

A novel mixed matrix membrane was prepared by blending polysulfone with two-dimensional boron nitride followed by its hydroxyl functionalization. Prepared nanocomposite membranes were characterized for the surface morphology, surface roughness, zeta potential and hydrophilicity. Uniform dispersion of boron nitride nanoparticles in polysulfone matrix and consequent changes in membrane properties were confirmed by scanning electron microscope images, atomic force microscope images, zeta potential, contact angle analysis, and X-Ray photoelectron spectroscopy. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) technique was used to determine the glass transition temperature (T g ) of the modified membrane and the results revealed the presence of BN in the membrane matrix. The highest water flux of 329.52 Liters per sqm per hour (LMH) was obtained in case of PS/BN (1%) as compared to 151.87 LMH of virgin membrane and Albumin rejection also increased by nanocomposites membranes up to certain concentration of Boron nitride. A unique behavior of temperature responsiveness of nanocomposite membrane was observed, where a steep increment in permeate flux by 205% at higher temperature was noted as compared to the virgin Polysulfone membrane where only 103% increase was recorded for the same temperature range. Moreover, the water uptake capacity of nanocomposite membranes were measured to understand the changes with nanomaterial incorporation. The membrane showed a good promise for high-temperature separation applications.

Polymers are known as thermally insulated materials with reported effective thermal conductivity (Keff) in the range of 0.1 to 0.5 Wm⁻¹ K⁻¹. However, increasing demand for smaller and more powerful electronics has created the need for thermally conductive polymers for use in heat exchangers and electronic packaging applications. Given this background, much research has been done over the past two decades to increase the Keff of polymers. Based on the strategy involved, those works can be divided into two main categories: (i) increasing the Keff of the neat polymer by aligning its chains orientation; and (ii) increasing polymer Keff by fabrication of polymeric composites with thermally conductive filler networks. Among these two strategies, the former is limited to nanoscale laboratory research and is difficult to scale up for mass production. Therefore, this work is mainly focused on the latter category, thermally conductive polymeric composites, which has a higher potential for large-scale production. This work aims to summarize, evaluate, and highlight the successful strategies of the recent efforts in enhancing the thermal conductivity of polymer composites. The major achievements, future challenges, and the outlooks of high thermally conductive polymeric composites are presented by analyzing the results of about 300 works.

Thermal conductivity (λ) and permittivity (ε′) of polymer composites based on linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) and poly(lactic acid) (PLA) filled with hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) were considered in this work. It is found that all developed composites possess dielectric properties and enhancement thermal conductivity compared with neat polymer matrices. Unlike carbonaceous materials (carbon black, graphite, graphene, carbon nanotubes), hBN is a good insulator and is therefore more applicable as a filler for heat-releasing materials with a purely white appearance. At the same time, both LLDPE/hBN and PLA/hBN composites at 40 wt% filler content possess the comparable value of λ about 0.7 W/(m K), which is almost 95% and 250% higher than those for the neat LLDPE and PLA, respectively.

PLA/hBN/Al2O3 hybrid composites with 1–30% filler concentrations were prepared in which composites with 1–2% fillers exhibit high tensile strength & modulus (8–22%, 2–12%), flexural strength & modulus (10–21%, 5–16%), storage modulus (1–14%), Tg & thermal stability (4°C, 4%), scratch hardness (37–48%), with very low CTE (22–25% & 58–66%) & surface roughness (81–97%) compared to all other samples. This improved mechanical, thermal, and decreased CTE were due to synergetic effects of hybrid fillers in the PLA matrix. The extruded filaments with 1% hybrid fillers can be used for the mass production of future bio-based substrates and enclosures.

The objective of this paper is investigating the effect of different localizations of titanium dioxide (TiO2) and hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) nanoparticles in the poly(lactic acid) (PLA)/poly(ε‐caprolactone) (PCL) blends on the ultraviolet (UV) blocking, infrared reflection (NIR), and thermal conductivity of the nanocomposites for the fabrication of bionanocomposites with high performance. Transmission electron microscopy images demonstrated that the different mixing sequences induced different nanoparticle localization in the immiscible PCL/PLA blend. These different localizations yielded differences in the properties of the hybrid quaternary nanocomposite. When the nanoparticles had different localizations, TiO2 at the interface and hBN in the PCL phase, the thermal conductivity was 0.86 Wm−1 K−1, 100% of UV radiation (λ = 300 nm) was blocked and 74% of NIR radiation was reflected. This nanocomposite has a strong potential for application as a multifunctional biodegradable film for agriculture, capable of absorbing UV radiation, reflecting NIR radiation, and conducting thermal energy.

Using additive manufacturing to generate a polymer–metal structure offers the potential to achieve a complex customized polymer structure joined to a metal base of high stiffness and strength. A tool to evaluate the generated interface during the process is of fundamental interest, as the sequential deposition of the polymer as well as temperature gradients within the substrate lead to local variations in adhesion depending on the local processing conditions. On preheated aluminum substrates, 0.3 and 0.6 mm high traces of polylactic acid (PLA) were deposited. Based on differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and rheometry measurements, the substrate temperature was varied in between 150 and 200 °C to identify an optimized manufacturing process. Decreasing the layer height and increasing the substrate temperature promoted wetting and improved the adhesion interface performance as measured in a single lap shear test (up to 7 MPa). Thermographic monitoring was conducted at an angle of 25° with respect to the substrate surface and allowed a thermal evaluation of the process at any position on the substrate. Based on the thermographic information acquired during the first second after extrusion and the preset shape of the polymer trace, the resulting wetting and shear strength were estimated.

This work aims to develop multifunctional biodegradable ternary nanocomposites with heat dissipation capability. The effects of adding hexagonal boron nitride (hBN), regarding phase morphology, near‐infrared radiation (NIR) reflectance and thermal conductivity of poly(ε‐caprolactone) (PCL) and poly(lactic acid) (PLA) blends were investigated. The hBN nanoparticles were selectively localized in the PCL phase. Scanning electron microscopy showed that the increased hBN concentration in the PCL/PLA blend led to a more fibrillar PLA phase and, after compression molding, its morphology presented a co‐continuous structure. Adding hBN nanoplatelets increased the reflectance in the NIR region by 184%, the thermal conductivity of the PCL/PLA by 400%, and increased the blend's thermal stability. The co‐continuous morphology could favor the heat flow, because it promotes the confinement of the hBN nanoplatelets in the PCL phase, favoring the conductive thermal pathway formation. POLYM.

The development of portable and wearable electronic devices has substantially increased the demand for printed circuit boards with high thermal conductivity, optimal mechanical flexibility, electrical insulativity and minimal high-frequency transmission loss. Herein, we demonstrate the fabrication of a thermally conductive, flexible composite paper, for electronic and microwave devices based on hexagonal boron nitride nanosheets, polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) and fiberglass mesh (FGM). The prepared composite paper exhibits in-plane thermal conductivity of 22.51 W/(m·K), and, the FGM induced, the high mechanical strength of 27.92 MPa. The transmission loss, of the grounded coplanar waveguide lines, was 0.10 dB/mm at 7.0 GHz, and shows negligible variation while bending, indicating the high flexibility of circuit board. These results demonstrate potential application of BN-based composite paper in flexible electronic devices.
