Short Poly(ethylene glycol) Block Initiation of Poly(L‐lactide) Di‐block Copolymers: A Strategy for Tuning the Degradation of Resorbable Devices

The current range of medical applications of resorbable polyesters could be hugely expanded if more effective strategies for tailoring degradation rate were available. Block copolymerisation with...

Synthesis of new ionic cross‐linked polymer hydrogel combining polystyrene and poly(4‐vinyl pyridine) and its self‐healing through reshuffling reaction of trithiocarbonate moiety under the irradiation of ultraviolet light

New ionic cross‐linked polymer hydrogel was achieved by the strategy of ionically cross‐linked of α, ω‐dibromide terminated polystyrene (Br‐PS‐Br) with poly(4‐vinyl pyridine) (P4VP) which...

Addressing Water Scarcity: Cationic Polyelectrolytes in Water Treatment and Purification

Synthetic cationic polyelectrolytes (CPE) serve as coagulation and flocculation agents in wastewater treatment due to a synergy of inherent electrostatic interactions and hydrophilic properties. In...

Effects of Short‐Chain Branches on Strain‐Induced Polymer Crystallization

We performed dynamic Monte Carlo simulations of a lattice polymer model to investigate strain‐induced crystallization behaviors of short‐chain branched polymers with variable sequence...

Evolution of the mechanical properties and the estimation of the useful lifespan of PLA based compounds

The useful lifespans of a poly(lactic acid)/poly(methyl methacrylate) (PLA/PMMA) 80/20 (%wt) blend and poly(lactic acid)/dioctyl adipate/talc (PLA/DOA/talc) compound have been estimated by applying...

Colorimetric detection of Hg2+ using a mixture of an anionic azo dye and a cationic polyelectrolyte in aqueous solution

We investigated the colorimetric chemosensor for Hg2+ based on a mixture of xylidyl blue I (XB‐I) as an anionic organic dye and poly(diallyldimethylammonium chloride) (PDADMAC) as a cationic...

Arylamine Polymers Prepared via Facile Paraldehyde‐Addition Condensation: an Effective Hole‐Transporting Material for Perovskite Solar Cells

Arylamine polymers were prepared via the facile one‐step addition condensation of N,N′‐diphenyl‐N,N′‐bis(4‐methylphenyl)‐1,4‐phenylenediamine and 4‐methoxytriphenylamine with paraldehyde. The...

Influences of the grafting percentage of natural rubber‐graft‐poly(2‐hydroxyethyl acrylate) (NR‐g‐PHEA) on properties of its vulcanizates

The graft copolymerization of 2‐hydroxyethyl acrylate (HEA) monomer onto natural rubber (NR) latex was successful by using cumene hydroperoxide and tetraethylene pentamine as redox initiators. The...
