The homogeneous polycarbonate/poly(acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene) (PC/ABS) nanocomposite thin films were prepared by a facile solvent casting method using phenylene modified-mesoporous silica materials as additives and dichloromethane as a solvent. The physicochemical analyses using small-angle X-ray scattering, nitrogen adsorption–desorption, solid-state 13C and 29Si nuclear magnetic resonance, and scanning electron microscope were investigated to provide clear physical and chemical properties for modified-mesoporous materials and nanocomposite films. Tensile tests were performed at room temperature according to ASTM D638. Rheological properties were also analyzed to observe any variance of solid–liquid property. As a compatibilizer and a reinforcing filler, mesoporous (organo-)silicas showed enhanced features in rheological and mechanical properties. The sound absorption coefficient was measured by the impedance tube up to 6400 Hz according to ISO 10534-2. It was found that the PC/ABS nanocomposites containing mesoporous materials can be used as a sound-proofing support material depending on fabrication process. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J. Appl.
