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 ...
Toxicity of Particulate Matter from Incineration of Nanowaste
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-01-13)
Disposal of some nanomaterial-containing waste by incineration and the subsequent formation of particulate matter (PM) along with hazardous combustion by-products are inevitable. The effect of nanomaterials on the toxicity ...
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 ...
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 ...
