11. Classification of Semiconducting Polymeric Mesophases to Optimize Device Post-Processing
Topic: Polymers
Published: 8/17/2015
Authors: Chad R Snyder, Regis J Kline, Dean M DeLongchamp, Ryan C Nieuwendaal, Lee J Richter, Martin Heeney, Iain McCulloch
Abstract: Semiconducting polymers form a variety of phases and mesophases that respond differently to post-deposition solvent or thermal treatments. Here it is shown that classification of these materials into their appropriate mesophases can be a useful tool ...

12. THERMOPLASTIC POLYURETHANES WITH CONTROLLED MORPHOLOGY BASED ON MDI/ISOSORBIDE/BUTANEDIOL HARD SEGMENTS
Topic: Polymers
Published: 6/22/2015
Authors: Fan Zhang, Ivan Javni, Olivera Bili?, Nikola Bili? , Zoran S Petrovic, Jan Ilavsky
Abstract: Isosorbide, a cyclic, rigid and renewable diol was used as a chain extender in two series of thermoplastic polyurethanes. Isosorbide was used in combination with butane diol or alone to examine the effects on polyurethane morphology. Two series of ma ...

13. Materials Testing Standards for Additive Manufacturing of Polymer Materials: State of the Art and Standards Applicability
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8059
Topic: Polymers
Published: 5/15/2015
Author: Aaron M Forster
Abstract: Additive manufacturing (AM) continues to grow as an advanced manufacturing technique. The most recent industry report from Wohlers and Associates indicates AM represented $1.6Bin revenue from parts, systems, and other supporting industries in 201 ...

15. Characterizing water transport in ultrathin desalination membranes using Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Dissipation
Topic: Polymers
Published: 1/19/2015
Authors: Nichole Nadermann, Edwin P Chan, Christopher M Stafford
Abstract: We study the water transport and swelling properties of an ultrathin polyamide selective layer with a hydroxyl-rich polymer coating, i.e., a polymer bilayer, using quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation (QCM-D). Specifically, we use QCM-D t ...

16. Effect of Heterogeneity in Nano-TiO2 Filled Acrylic Urethane Coatings on Surface Degradation under Accelerated UV Exposure
Topic: Polymers
Published: 10/30/2014
Authors: Yongyan Pang, Stephanie S Watson, Li Piin Sung
Abstract: The objective of this study was to investigate how the heterogeneity due to nanoparticle dispersion of polymeric coatings affects surface morphological changes during ultraviolet (UV) exposure under different weathering conditions. Three types of nan ...

17. A mini-review: Cell response to microscale, nanoscale, and hierarchical patterning of surface structure
Topic: Polymers
Published: 9/12/2014
Authors: Carl George Simon Jr., Geunhyung Kim, HoJun Jeon
Abstract: Cellular behavior can be influenced by the chemical and physical surface characteristics of biomedical substrates. To understand the relationships between various topographical surface patterns and cellular activities, various types of pattern mo ...

18. Spray-deposition and photopolymerization of organic-inorganic thiol-ene resins for fabrication of superamphiphobic surfaces
Topic: Polymers
Published: 6/9/2014
Authors: Li Xiong, Laken Kendrick, Hannele Heusser, Bradley J Sparks, Christopher M Stafford, James T Goetz, Sergei Nazarenko, Derek L Patton
Abstract: Superamphiphobic surfaces, exhibiting high contact angles and low contact angle hysteresis to both water and low surface tension liquids, have attracted a great deal of attention in recent years due to the importance in many practical application ...
