Size dependent ion-exchange of large mixed-metal complexes into Nafion® membranes
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-08-18)
Perfluorosulfonate ionomers have been shown to demonstrate a profound affinity for large cationic complexes, and the exchange of these ions may be used to provide insight regarding Nafion® morphology by contrasting molecular ...
Imidazole-containing triblock copolymers with a synergy of ether and imidazolium sites
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-03-06)
Reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization enabled the synthesis of well-defined A-BC-A triblock copolymers containing a synergy of pendant ether and imidazolium sites. The soft central BC block ...
Olefin cross-metathesis, a mild, modular approach to functionalized cellulose esters
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-09-02)
Olefin cross-metathesis has been demonstrated to be a modular pathway for synthesis of a series of functionalized cellulose esters. As a proof of concept, cellulose acetate was acylated with two terminally olefinic acid ...
Nucleobase-functionalized acrylic ABA triblock copolymers and supramolecular blends
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-01-30)
Reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization afforded the unprecedented synthesis of well-defined acrylic ABA triblock copolymers with nucleobase-functionalized external blocks and a central ...
Imparting functional variety to cellulose ethers via olefin cross-metathesis
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-04-09)
Olefin cross-metathesis is a valuable new approach for imparting functional variety to cellulose ethers. Starting from commercially available ethyl cellulose, terminally unsaturated alkyl groups were appended as metathesis ...
Peptide-based hydrogen sulphide-releasing gels
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-07-20)
An aromatic peptide amphiphile was designed for delivery of the signaling gas H2S. The peptide self-assembled in water into nanofibers that gelled upon charge screening. The non-toxic gel slowly released H2S over 15 hours, ...
Phosphonium-containing diblock copolymers from living anionic polymerization of 4-diphenylphosphino styrene
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-11-20)
Living anionic polymerization of 4-diphenylphosphino styrene (DPPS) achieved well-defined homopolymers, poly(DPPS-b-S) styrenic block copolymers, and poly(I-b-DPPS) diene-based diblock copolymers with predictable molecular ...
Capillary forces on a small particle at a liquid-vapor interface: Theory and simulation
(American Physical Society, 2018-09-24)
GSA Tomorrow: An Open Challenge to Promote the Future of Geoscience
(Geological Society of America, 2018-11-20)
The future of geoscience rests on your shoulders. Geologists are passionate about their science and discuss their interests with vigor, firmly understanding why geoscience is as important to society as physiology, agriculture, ...
