• Highly filled water based polymer/clay hybrid latexes 

      Zengeni, Eddson (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2012-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The use of co-sonication (ad-miniemulsion) polymerisation for the preparation of highly filled polymer/clay hybrid latexes is described. Laponite (Lap) content levels in the range of 10–50 wt% were ...
    • Polymer-clay nanocomposites prepared by RAFT-supported grafting 

      Chirowodza, Helen (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2012-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: In materials chemistry, surface-initiated reversible deactivation radical polymerisation (SI-RDRP) has emerged as one of the most versatile routes to synthesising inorganic/organic hybrid materials ...
