Synthesis and characterisation of organic-inorganic hybrid block copolymers of polydimethylsiloxane and polystyrene
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2007-03)
Hybrid A-B type block copolymers of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) and polystyrene (PS) were synthesised. Three different synthetic routes, which allowed control over polymer structure, were chosen to synthesise these block ...
Novel electrospun fibres of amphiphilic organic-inorganic graft copolymers of poly(acrylonitrile)-graftpoly( dimethylsiloxane) for silicone composite reinforcement
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2011-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Novel silicone nanocomposites were prepared using poly(acrylonitrile) (PAN) based reinforcing fibres as well as multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs). Compatibility of the fibre fillers with the silicone ...
