Abstract(s)Multiferroic and magnetoelectric materials show enormous potential for technological developments. Multiferroic composites are more attractive for applications due to their enhanced properties with respect to single-phase multiferroic materials. In this paper we report on the nucleation of the electroactive β-phase of poly(vinylidene fluoride), PVDF, by the addition of CoFe2O4 and NiFe2O4 nanoparticles in order to prepare poly(vinylidene fluoride)/ferrite nanocomposite for multiferroic and magnetoelectric applications,. The dispersed ferrite nano-filler particles strongly enhance the nucleation of the β-phase of the polymer matrix. In this way, magnetoelectric polymer nancomposites can be processed avoiding the usual to phase transformation by stretching of the polymer matrix.
