Enantioselective Ring-Opening Polymerization of rac-Lactide Dictated by Densely Substituted Aminoacids
Organocatalysis is becoming an important tool in polymer science because of its versatility and specificity. To date a limited number of organic catalysts have demonstrated the ability to promote stereocontrolled ...
Organic-Acid Mediated Bulk Polymerization of e-Caprolactam and Its Copolymerization with e-Caprolactone
Polyamides (PA) constitute one of the most important classes of polymeric materials and have gained strong position in different areas, such as textiles, fibers, and construction materials. Whereas most PA are synthesized ...
Isomorphic polyoxyalkylenes copolyethers obtained by copolymerization of aliphatic diols
(American Chemical Society, 2019-05-01)
Isomorphism in random copolymers occurs when comonomer units can crystallize within a single crystalline lattice in the entire composition range. This ideal behavior is rare in random copolymers and only a few examples of ...
Temperature responsive PEG-based polyurethanes “ a la carte”
Temperature responsive polymers able to alter their chemical or physical properties have been extensively investigated. Most of these polymers have an alkane polymer backbone with only carbon-carbon bonds. In this sense, ...
Polyether Synthesis by Bulk Self-Condensation of Diols Catalyzed by Non-eutectic Acid Base Organocatalysts
(American Chemical Society, 2019-01-25)
Polyethers constitute a well-established class of polymers covering a wide range of applications from industrial man-ufacturing to nanomedicine. Nevertheless, their industrial implementation is limited to short chain ...
Effect of Chemical Structure and Salt Concentration on the Crystallization and Ionic Conductivity of Aliphatic Polyethers
Poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) is the most widely used polymer in the field of solid polymer electrolytes for batteries. It is well known that the crystallinity of polymer electrolytes strongly affects the ionic conductivity ...
