The results of direct numerical simulation obtained earlier, within the cluster
quantum-chemical approximation, are used in experimental investigations of
polydimethylsiloxane composites with shungit. The surface structure of these composites by
scanning electron and atomic force microscopy was studied. Correlation of the distribution of
micro and nano - dimensional filler in the polymer matrix with the physical mechanical
properties of the elastomers was established.
Keywords: polydimethylsiloxane composites, nanoshungit filler, scanning electron and atomic force microscopy.
