  1. 1. Block Copolymer Electrolytes Polymers for Solid-State Lithium Batteries

    Author : Andreas Bergfelt; Tim Bowden; Daniel Brandell; Yoichi Tominaga; []

    Abstract : The use of solid polymer electrolytes (SPEs) for lithium battery devices is a rapidly growing research area. The liquid electrolytes that are used today are inflammable and harmful towards the battery components. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mixed Block Copolymer Solutions: Self-Assembly and Interactions

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Chemistry, Division of Physical Chemistry

    Author : Solmaz Bayati; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Polymer; Block Copolymer; PEO-PPO-PEO; Pluronics©; Bile Salt; NaGDC; PNIPAAM; PAMPTMA; PAMPS; Mixed Micelle; Self-Assembly; Mixed Complexes;

    Abstract : This thesis incorporates studies on the aqueous systems of two types of thermoresponsive amphiphilic block copolymers; a series of nonionic triblock copolymers comprising blocks of poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) and poly(propylene oxide) (PPO) denoted as PEO-PPO-PEO block copolymers, and a series of ionic diblock copolymers consisting of one charged block and one block of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAAM). Various techniques, such as dynamic and static light scattering (DLS and SLS), small angle X-ray and neutron scattering (SAXS and SANS), high sensitivity differential scanning calorimetry (HSDSC), turbidimetry, electrophoretic mobility measurements, and two-dimensional proton NMR nuclear Overhauser effect spectroscopy (2D 1H NMR NOESY), were applied to study these block copolymer systems.

  3. 3. Ternary Block Copolymer Systems - Phase Behaviour and Phase Structure

    University dissertation from Birgitta Svensson, Physical Chemistry 1, Lund University

    Author : Birgitta Svensson; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Theoretical chemistry; lyotropic; thermotropic; SANS; SAXS; scattering; semicrystalline; reverse micelle; micellar solution; liquid crystalline; phase diagram; phase behaviour; block copolymer; pluronic; poly ethylene oxide ; poly propylene oxide ; quantum chemistry; Teoretisk kemi; kvantkemi;

    Abstract : Ternary isothermal (25°C) polyoxyalkylene triblock block copolymer ((EO)x(PO)y(EO)x where x is the number of ethylene oxide, EO, segments and y is the number of propylene oxide, PO, segments) systems with water and p-xylene as selective solvents for the PEO and PPO blocks, respectively, were chosen as study systems in this thesis as these ternary systems are good model systems for the self-assembly of block copolymers. The phase behaviour has been studied at varied block copolymer molecular weight and relative PEO/PPO block ratio. READ MORE

  4. 4. Formation of Block Copolymer and Surfactant Vesicles

    University dissertation from Karin Bryskhe, Villav. 8, 232 53 Åkarp

    Author : Karin Bryskhe; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Polymerteknik; Fysikalisk kemi; biopolymers; Polymer technology; nanoparticles; Lipid; triblock copolymer; surfactants; Nonionic; Vesicles; Formation; Physical chemistry;

    Abstract : In this thesis temperature induced vesicle formation in both a block copolymer system and nonionic surfactant system have been investigated. The block copolymer is a triblock copolymer of poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) and poly(propylene oxide) (PPO), PEO-PPO-PEO, with the average molecular composition of EO5PO68EO5 and the commercial trade name Pluronic L121 (papers I, II).

  5. 5. Self-assembly in Melts of Block copolymer-based Systems Featuring Supramolecular Interactions

    University dissertation from Department of Chemistry, Lund University

    Author : Mehran Asad Ayoubi; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; hierarchical self-assembly; melt; block copolymer; cationic surfactant; non-ionic surfactant; supramolecular interactions; microphase separation; Linear-b-AmphComb;

    Abstract : The subject of this thesis is experimental investigation of self-assembly in solvent-free (ionic) macromolecular systems that contain block copolymer chains as the basic constituent component in combination with low molecular weight amphiphiles. In particular, especial attention is paid to study thoroughly a new class of block copolymer-based ionic supramolecules, named as Linear-b-AmphComb, that feature novel hierarchical self-assembly characteristics.
