Abstract: 

This article presents an extensive survey of the current knowledge in the field of a recently emerged linear aromatic polyester, poly (trimethylene terephthalate) (PTT), as a promising thermoplastic polymer for engineering applications currently addressed by linear polyamides, as well as two other linear aromatic polyesters, i.e., poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET), and poly(butylene terephthalate) (PBT). To offset relatively high cost and further improve the physical properties, tailoring PTT to specific performance-cost profile taking advantage of blending with other polymers has received substantial interest. Critical results of the published papers available within the literature on PTT-based blends are cited in this article. From the standpoint of integrating the features of both polymers and nanoparticles into composite materials, the impressive technology of nanocomposites has been increasingly drawing academic and scientific attraction where the polyester nanocomposites, including thosebased on PTT matrix in particular, have also been successfully delivered with desired properties. The recent advances in the area of PTT-based nanocomposites are then reviewed in this survey. A concise discussion on the future trends in the aforementioned fields is lastly presented.
