Characterization of Nanosilica Release from a Weathered Nanosilica/Polyurethane Coating

, , , , , , , , , ,
Polymer nanocoatings are widely used outdoor environment because the excellent properties. The addition of nanoparticles can improve performance properties including mechanical, electrical, chemical and ultraviolet resistance. However, because polymer in coating are susceptible to degradation [...]

Nanogel Star Polymer Nanostructures of Controlled Size, Molecular Architecture and Functionality: No Assembly Required

, , , , , , , , , , , ,
We have developed versatile routes to nanogel core, multiarm star polymeric unimolecular amphiphiles that provides exquisite control over molecular size, polydispersity, chain and periphery functionality which eliminate the dynamic equilibrium associated with polymeric micelles. . [...]

Nanoparticle Release from Polymer Nanocomposites Used for Potable Water Infrastructure and Food Packaging: Current Progress & Beyond

, , , , ,
Engineered nanoparticles (ENP) are increasingly being integrated into polymeric infrastructure and food packaging materials worldwide. ENPs can improve product strength, extend infrastructure service life, and increase a polymer’s antimicrobial resistance and oxygen barrier properties. While [...]
