    Abstract : This thesis describes the preparation, characterisation and properties of poly(ethylene-graft-ethylene oxide) (PE-PEO). The grafting reaction was carried out with the grafting onto method using the carboxylic acid groups of poly(ethylene-co-acrylic acid) (PEAA) as reactive sites in an esterification reaction with poly(ethylene oxide) mono-methyl ethers (MPEO) of varying molecular weights: 750, 2000 and 5000.

  4. 4. Polymer Ionic Materials: A Study of new Materials for Solid Polymer Fuel Cells and Rechargeable Polymer Batteries

    Author : Britta Mattsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : PPO; polystyrene; neutron scattering; poly propylene oxide ; PEO; polymer electrolytes; poly vinylidene fluoride ; poly ethylene oxide ; luminescence; Raman spectroscopy; proton conducting polymer; poly styrene sulfonic acid ; PVDF;

    Abstract : Ion-containing polymeric materials are interesting for use in a wide variety of applications, where the flexible, yet mechanically stable, polymer matrix is essential. Intensive research is presently going on worldwide for applications as electrolytes in solid polymer batteries and fuel cells, where the ion-conducting polymer also serves as an electrode separator.

  5. 5. Ternary Block Copolymer - Water - "Oil" Systems: Effects of "Oil" Type and Block Size on Phase Behaviour and Structure

    Author : Peter Holmqvist; Fysikalisk kemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; poly propylene oxide ; poly ethylene oxide ; poloxamer; micelles; lyotropic liquid crystals; SAXS; structure; phase behavior; self-assembly; block copolymers; amphiphiles; poly tetrahydrofurane ; Physical chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : It has recently been established in our group that amphiphilic block copolymers consisting of a hydrophilic and a hydrophobic part can self-assemble in the presence of selective solvents (“water” and “oil”) into a variety of different solution and lyotropic liquid crystalline microstructures. The effects of the “oil” type, hydrophilic block size and hydrophobic block type on the phase behavior and microstructure of ternary isothermal copolymer - oil - water systems have been addressed in this thesis.
