Oil-Impregnated Hydrocarbon-Based Polymer Films
(Springer Nature, 2018-08-03)
Porous surfaces impregnated with a liquid lubricant exhibit minimal contact angle hysteresis with immiscible test liquids, rendering them ideal as self-cleaning materials. Rather than roughening a solid substrate, an ...
Low-cost sensor-integrated 3D-printed personalized prosthetic hands for children with amniotic band syndrome: A case study in sensing pressure distribution on an anatomical human-machine interface (AHMI) using 3D-printed conformal electrode arrays
Interfacing anatomically conformal electronic components, such as sensors, with biology is central to the creation of next-generation wearable systems for health care and human augmentation applications. Thus, there is a ...
Functionalized Cellulose Nanocrystal Nanocomposite Membranes with Controlled Interfacial Transport for Improved Reverse Osmosis Performance
Thin-film nanocomposite membranes (TFNs) are a recent class of materials that use nanoparticles to provide improvements over traditional thin-film composite (TFC) reverse osmosis membranes by addressing various design ...
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 ...
Capillary forces on a small particle at a liquid-vapor interface: Theory and simulation
(American Physical Society, 2018-09-24)
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
