1. Characterizing water transport in ultrathin desalination membranes using Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Dissipation
Topic: Polymers
Published: 1/19/2015
Authors: Nichole Nadermann, Edwin P Chan, Christopher M Stafford
Abstract: We study the water transport and swelling properties of an ultrathin polyamide selective layer with a hydroxyl-rich polymer coating, i.e., a polymer bilayer, using quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation (QCM-D). Specifically, we use QCM-D t ...

2. Effect of Heterogeneity in Nano-TiO2 Filled Acrylic Urethane Coatings on Surface Degradation under Accelerated UV Exposure
Topic: Polymers
Published: 10/30/2014
Authors: Yongyan Pang, Stephanie S Watson, Li Piin Sung
Abstract: The objective of this study was to investigate how the heterogeneity due to nanoparticle dispersion of polymeric coatings affects surface morphological changes during ultraviolet (UV) exposure under different weathering conditions. Three types of nan ...

3. Spray-deposition and photopolymerization of organic-inorganic thiol-ene resins for fabrication of superamphiphobic surfaces
Topic: Polymers
Published: 6/9/2014
Authors: Li Xiong, Laken Kendrick, Hannele Heusser, Bradley J Sparks, Christopher M Stafford, James T Goetz, Sergei Nazarenko, Derek L Patton
Abstract: Superamphiphobic surfaces, exhibiting high contact angles and low contact angle hysteresis to both water and low surface tension liquids, have attracted a great deal of attention in recent years due to the importance in many practical application ...

4. Quantifying Crystallinity in High Molar Mass Poly(3-hexylthiophene)
Topic: Polymers
Published: 6/3/2014
Authors: Chad R Snyder, Ryan C Nieuwendaal, Dean M DeLongchamp, Christine K Luscombe, Prakash Sista, Shane D Boyd
Abstract: We extend a recent comprehensive study of 3-hexylthiophene oligomers to high molar mass poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) fractions, such as those used in organic photovoltaic devices. Through a combination of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and ...

5. Confinement-Driven Increase in Ionomer Thin-Film Modulus
Topic: Polymers
Published: 4/28/2014
Authors: Kirt Anthony Page, Ahmet Kusoglu, Christopher M Stafford, Sangcheol Kim, Regis J Kline, Adam Weber
Abstract: Ion-conductive polymers, or ionomers, are critical materials for a wide range of electrochemical technologies. For optimizing the complex, heterogeneous structures in which they occur, there is a need to elucidate the governing structure/func ...

6. Measuring Organelle Shape in 3D in Stem Cells Cultured on Nanofiber Scaffolds
Topic: Polymers
Published: 4/19/2014
Authors: Carl George Simon Jr., Peter Bajcsy, Wojtek J Tutak, Jyotsnendu (Jyotsnendu) Giri
Abstract: Previous work has demonstrated that culture of osteoprogenitor cells on nanofiber scaffolds can potentiate osteogenic differentiation [1-4]. Culture of cells in nanofiber scaffolds causes changes to cell morphology, suggesting that morphological ...

7. Measuring Stem Cell Dimensionality in Tissue Scaffolds
Topic: Polymers
Published: 4/1/2014
Authors: Carl George Simon Jr., Sapun Parekh, Christopher K. Tison, Girish Kumar, Tanya M. Farooque, Charles H Camp
Abstract: Many 3D scaffold systems have evolved for tissue engineering, drug screening and in vitro tissue models. However, it is not clear which scaffolds provide a 3D cell niche and there is no clear way to measure cell niche dimensionality. Advances in 3D ...

8. Single PPTA fiber tensile test under high strain rate
Topic: Polymers
Published: 4/1/2014
Authors: Jae Hyun Kim, Nathanael A Heckert, Steven P Mates, Jonathan Edward Seppala, Chelsea Simone Davis, Walter G McDonough, Kirk D Rice, Gale Antrus Holmes

9. Exact solution of the thermodynamics and size parameters of a polymer confined to a lattice of finite size: Large chain limit
Topic: Polymers
Published: 1/21/2014
Authors: Chad R Snyder, Charles Martin Guttman, Edmund Armando DiMarzio
Abstract: We extend the exact solutions of the Di Marzio-Rubin matrix method for the thermodynamic properties, including chain density, of a linear polymer molecule confined to walk on a lattice of finite size. Our extensions enable (a) the use of higher dimen ...

10. Saponins: A sustainable surfactant. From its microwave-assisted extraction to the synthesis of monodisperse latices
Topic: Polymers
Published: 1/21/2014
Authors: Charlene Schnitt, Bruno Grassl, Julien C. Gigault, Vincent A Hackley, Gaetane Lespes, Jacques Desbrieres, Virginie Pellerin, Stephanie Reynaud
Abstract: Synthetic surfactants are widely used in emulsion polymerization, but it is increasingly desirable to replace them with naturally derived molecules with a reduced environmental burden. This study demonstrates the use of saponins as sustainable an ...
