Comparative study of classical surfactants and polymerizable surfactants (surfmers) in the reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer mediated miniemulsion polymerization of styrene and methyl methacrylate
Cationic and anionic amphiphilic monomers (surfmers) were synthesized and used to stabilize particles in miniemulsion polymerization. A comparative study of classical cationic and anionic surfactants and the two surfmers ...
Synthesis and characterization of polystyrene-graphite nanocomposites via surface RAFT-mediated miniemulsion polymerization
Graphite oxide (GO) was prepared and immobilized with dodecyl isobutyric acid trithiocarbonate (DIBTC) reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) agent. The hydroxyl groups of GO were attached to the DIBTC ...
Use of the surfmer 11-(methacryloyloxy) undecanylsulfate MET as a comonomer in polystyrene and poly(methyl methacrylate)
The polymerizable surfactant sodium 11-(methacryloyloxy) undecanylsulfate (MET) has been synthesized with high purity, and its thermal stability and phase transitions have been studied by thermo gravimetric analysis (TGA) ...
Change in physico-chemical properties of PMMA and PS by copolymerization with an anionic amphiphilic comonomer: Sodium 11-(methacryloyloxy) undecanylsulfate (MET)
Sodium 11-(methacryloyloxy) undecanylsulfate (MET) monomer units were incorporated in polystyrene (PS) and poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) by free radical copolymerization in solution with styrene and methyl methacrylate, ...
Use of acrylic based surfmers for the preparation of exfoliated polystyrene-clay nanocomposites
Two polymerizable cationic surfactants, (11-acryloyloxyundecyl)dimethyl(2-hydroxyethyl)ammonium bromide (hydroxyethyl surfmer) and (11-acryloyloxyundecyl)dimethylethylammonium bromide (ethyl surfmer), were used for the ...
