The development of polymeric nanocomposites obtainedfrom renewable raw materials has become an important area of research due totheir potential applications in different scientific and industrial fields and the environmentaladvantages when compared to synthetic polymers. Tung oil is extracted from the seeds of the tung treeand it is a highly unsaturated oil that can be polymerized with styrene in thepresence of a cationic initiator. Previous works have reported thatsome of the compositions display shape memory properties (SMP).The load of these systems with nano-magnetite (NM) can increase theirapplications. The magnetite nanoparticles can absorb electromagnetic energyfrom an external high-frequency field and release it as heat, which underspecific conditions, can be used to trigger the SMP of the nanocomposites. The aim of this work is to study the influence of NMconcentration on a polymeric matrix based on tung oil and styrene.
