A simple method for the preparation of magnetic nanocomposites consisting of cobalt ferrite (CF; CoFe2O4) nanoparticles, polybenzoxazine (PB), linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), and linear low-density polyethylene-g-maleic anhydride (LgM) is described. The composites were prepared by the formation of benzoxazine (BA)CF nanopowders followed by melt blending with LLDPE and the thermal curing of BA. The composites were characterized by X-ray diffraction, thermogravimetric analysis, differential scanning calorimetry, scanning electron microscopy, universal testing machine measurement, and vibrating sample magnetometry. The composites consisting of LLDPE, PB, and LgM (47.5L47.5PB5LgM) exhibited a higher tensile strength (23.82 MPa) than pure LLDPE and a greater elongation at break (6.11%) than pure PB. The tensile strength of the composites decreased from 19.92 to 18.55 MPa with increasing CF loading (from 14.25 to 33.25 wt %). The saturation magnetization of the composites containing 33.25 wt % CF was 18.28 emu/g, and it decreased with decreasing amount of CF in the composite. The composite films exhibited mechanical flexibility and magnetic properties. (c) 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J. Appl. Polym. Sci., 2013
