    • Free volume of electrospun organic-inorganic copolymers 

      Basson, Neil (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Two series of amphiphilic, organic-inorganic graft copolymers of poly(methyl methacrylate) and poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PMMA-graft-PDMS), as well as poly(acrylonitrile) and poly(dimethylsiloxane) ...

    • Organic-inorganic hybrid graft copolymers of polystyrene and polydimethylsiloxane 

      Sutherland, Aimee Celeste (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-03)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Hybrid graft copolymers of polystyrene (PSty) and polydimethylsiloxane macromonomers (PDMS) were synthesised. PSty-g-PDMS was synthesised employing the grafting through technique via a conventionally ...

    • RAFT mediated polysaccharide copolymers 

      Fleet, Reda (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2006-12)
      Cellulose, one of the most abundant organic substances on earth, is a linear polymer of D-glucose units joined through 1,4-β-linkages. Cellulose is however not easily processed without chemical modification. A number of ...

    • Synthesis and characterization of comb-polymers with controlled structure 

      Elhrari, Wael (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2006-12)
      Synthesis of a series of poly (methylmethacrylate)-graft-poly (styrene) polymer was carried out via free radical polymerization of methylmethacrylate and polystyrene macromonomers. The macromonomers were synthesized via ...

    • Synthesis and characterization of graft and block copolymers using hydroboration 

      Baleg, Abd-Almonam (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2006-12)
      Graft and block copolymers were synthesized using multifunctional and monofunctional macroinitiators to produce the copolymers. The process involved hydroboration of commercially available unsaturated rubbers and ...

    • Synthesis and characterization of urethane-acrylate graft copolymers 

      Alshuiref, Abubaker (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2006-12)
      Polyurethanes (PUs) are finding increasing application and use in many industries due to their advantageous properties, such as a wide range of flexibility combined with toughness, high chemical resistance, excellent ...
