Novel Supramolecules Based on Architecturally Variant alpha-Cyclodextrin Polyrotaxanes and Nanorod-Like alpha-Cyclodextrin Self-Assembly

, , , ,
Self-assembly (SA-ICs) of architecturally variant alpha-cyclodextrin (alpha-CD) inclusion complexes (ICs) formed by host-guest reaction with four polymeric guest having different molecular architectures (star-shaped, hyperbranched, diblocked, and linear polymer) and nanorod-like self-assembly (SA-CD) of alpha-CD could [...]

Effects of the Addition of TiO2 Nanoparticles for Polymer Electrolytes Based on Porous Poly(vinylidene fluoride-co-hexafluoropropylene)/Poly(ethylene oxide-co-ethylene carbonate) Membranes

, , , , ,
In order to ameliorate the performance of polymer electrolytes, we report on a novel solvent-free polymer electrolyte filled with viscous poly(ethylene oxide-co-ethylene carbonate) (P(EO-EC)) into a porous membrane. In addition, to enhance the conductivity and [...]
