Supercritical fluid processing of perfluorinated and sulfonated membranes
Over the past years, one of the most important challenges facing industry has been the search for environmentally benign and cost effective alternatives to traditional power sources. Many industries invest considerable ...
Poly(styrene-isobutylene-styrene) nanocomposite membranes for fuel cell devices and specialty separation applications
Ionic domains were incorporate into sulfonated poly(styrene–isobutylene–styrene) (SO3H SIBS) in an effort to improve the transport properties of the functionalized aromatic block copolymer. The resulting polymer nanocomposite ...
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 ...
An evaluation of optical band gap in photovoltaic polymers for solar energy capture
Organic solar cells are a very promising technology for use in the renewable energy field. Band gap measurements on liquid phase for different polymers were studied, and the possible radiation harvest and reasoning for ...
Brackish water desalination with a novel polymer nanocomposite membrane
The rapid growth of the global population, the industrialization and environmental problems caused by global warming have made it necessary to implement advanced water purification techniques capable of fulfilling the ...
