Low cost, catalyst free porous carbon nanospheres (CNSs) of size 60-70 nm, synthesized from bio-waste products, were used as fillers to fabricate a novel polymer matrix nanocomposite (PMNC) with two different filler contents, viz. 0.1 and 0.25 wt% in an epoxy resin. The composites were tested for their tensile strength and elastic modulus. The 0.25 wt%. composite showed similar to 30% improvement in tensile strength, similar to 7% increase in elastic modulus and similar to 50% increase in % elongation with respect to that of the base resin properties. This study offers exciting structural applications for CNS materials. (C) 2019 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
