Flexible aromatic disulfide monomers for high-performance self-healable linear and cross-linked poly(urethane-urea) coatings
Implementation of the self-healing concept in coatings is challenging because they have to combine mechanical strength and chain mobility. This challenge is addressed in this work by studying the effect of the polymer ...
Opportunities for organocatalysis in polymer synthesis via step-growth methods
Organocatalysis has emerged as an invaluable tool for polymer synthesis and has already demonstrated versatility for replacing organometallic catalysts in many polymerization reactions. The overall ease of removal and lower ...
The effect of the evaporation rate on electrochemical measurements with paper-based analytical devices and its minimisation by enclosure with adhesive tape
In this work, the effect of liquid evaporation on electrochemical measurements with electrochemical paper-based devices (ePADs) is studied. The time evolution of cyclic voltammograms of ferricyanide is used to study the ...
A bayesian estimation of the economic effects of the Common Fisheries Policy on the Galician Fleet: a dynamic stochastic general equilibrium approach
What would have happened if a relatively looser fisheries policy had been implemented in the European Union (EU)? Using Bayesian methods a Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) model is estimated to assess the ...
Synthesis of mechanically strong waterborne poly(urethane-urea)s capable of self-healing at elevated temperatures
Although various chemistries have been introduced into polyurethanes in order to obtain self-healing abilities, implementing these materials in applications requiring high strength is challenging as strong materials imply ...
Experimental validation of a mathematical model for the evolution of the particle morphology of waterborne polymer-polymer hybrids: paving the way to the design and implementation of optimal polymerization strategies
Polymer-polymer composite nanoparticles allow both the improvement of the performance in stablished applications of waterborne polymer dispersions and targeting new applications that are out of reach of currently available ...
