Thin film processing and the morphological and mechanical characterization of Sulfonated Poly (Styrene-Isobutylene-Styrene) (Sibs) triblock copolymers
This work focuses on the fabrication and characterization of SIBS thin films deposited via spincoating for potential applications in microelectrochemical devices. The main goals of this project are to determine suitable ...
Electrical characterization of sulfonated poly(styrene-isobutylene-styrene) triblock copolymer thin films
Polymers are a fundamental part of electronic systems and are widely used due to their low cost, ease of processing, and their wide range of mechanical and electrical properties. They have traditionally been used as passive ...
Synthesis and characterization of Sulfonated Poly(Styrene-Isoprene-Styrene): Effects of linear vs branched morphology and counter-ion substitution
This investigation studied the resulting nanostructure of ionic membranes composed of sulfonated copolymers with thermoplastic and elastomeric blocks. Linear poly(styrene-isoprenestyrene) (L-SIS) and branched poly(styren ...
Functionalization and characterization of Sulfonated Poly (Styrene-Isobutylene-Styrene) membranes for fuel cells and specialty separation applications
In this study, the transport properties of poly(styrene-isobutylene-styrene) (SIBS) block copolymer were determined as a function of sulfonation level (0-94.9 %), counter ion substitution (Ba+2, Ca+2, Mg+2, Mn+2, Cu+2, ...
Thermogravimetric characterization of polystyrene-based, triblock copolymers: effects of sulfonation, counter-ion substitution, number average molecular weight, and polystyrene weight fraction
In this study, poly (styrene-isobutylene-styrene) (SIBS) was characterized using thermogravimetric analysis. The thermal behavior of three types of SIBS, with different average number molecular weight, Mn , and polystyrene ...
Sulfonated polymer metal nanocomposite membranes with bacterial disinfection activity in water
This study describes the synthesis and characterization of sulfonated poly(styreneisobutylene- styrene) (SIBS) polymer nanocomposite membranes, which show antibacterial properties useful for the inactivation of Enterococci ...
