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 ...
Directed reactions within confined reaction environments: Polyadditions in polyelectrolyte-surfactant complexes
Polyaddition reactions performed within a highly ordered polyelectrolyte-surfactant monomer complex of polydiallyldimethylammonium chloride and di(undecenyl) phosphate give a 1:1 copy of the original lamellar host structure. ...
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) ...
