Biphenyl-functionalized Ethane-silica Hybrid Materials with Ordered Hexagonal Mesoporous Structure

, , , , , ,
A biphenyl-containing hybrid organic-inorganic mesoporous materials have been synthesized and characteized. The synthesis was done via surfactant-templated polymerization of 4,4’-bis(triethoxysilyl)biphenyl and 1,2-bis(triethoxysilyl)ethane under basic condition. The composition, structure and morphology of the mesoporous materials were [...]

Synthesis and Characterization of Recycled Polycarbonate/Organo-montmorillonite Nanocomposites

, , , ,
This study aims to synthesize and investigate the electrical, chemical and thermo-mechanical properties of recycled polycarbonate/organo-montmorillonite nanocomposites. Polycarbonate from post-consumer wastes was recovered by mechanical abrasion process and chemical stripping. Formulations of 1-10% organo-montmorillonite (o-mmt) [...]
