Nucleobase-Functionalized ABC Triblock Copolymers: Self-assembly of Supramolecular Architectures
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-06-24)
RAFT polymerization afforded acrylic ABC triblock copolymers with self-complementary nucleobase-functionalized external blocks and a low-Tg soft central block. ABC triblock copolymers self-assembled into well-defined ...
Water-Dispersible Cationic Polyurethanes Containing Pendant Trialkylphosphoniums
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-03-06)
Novel trialkylphosphonium ionic liquids chain extenders enabled the successful synthesis of poly(ethylene glycol)-based, cationic polyurethanes with pendant phosphoniums in the hard segments (HS). Aqueous size exclusion ...
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 ...
Reduced erbium-doped ceria nanoparticles: one nano-host applicable for simultaneous optical down- and up-conversions
This paper introduces a new synthesis procedure to form erbium-doped ceria nanoparticles (EDC NPs) that can act as an optical medium for both up-conversion and down-conversion in the same time. This synthesis process results ...
Environmental science and engineering applications of nanocellulose-based nanocomposites
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-06-26)
Compared with cellulose, the primary component of the paper we use every day, nanocellulose has a much smaller diameter (typically <10 nm) that renders it many unique properties. Amongst many others, these properties include ...
Characterization of Particle Emissions and Fate of Nanomaterials During Incineration
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-01-24)
As the use of nanotechnology in consumer products continues to grow, it is inevitable that some nanomaterials will end up in the waste stream and will be incinerated. Through laboratory-scale incineration of paper and ...
