  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. Polymers in Aqueous Lubrication

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Junxue An; Per M. Claesson; Martin Malsten; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Lubrication; boundary lubrication; friction; surface forces; adsorption; adsorption hysteresis; non-equilibrium state; diblock copolymer; polyelectrolyte; thermoresponsive; mucin; QCM-D; ellipsometry; AFM; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : The main objective of this thesis work was to gain understanding of the layer properties and polymer structures that were able to aid lubrication in aqueous media. To this end, three types of polyelectrolytes: a diblock copolymer, a train-of-brushes and two brush-with-anchor mucins have been utilized. READ MORE

  4. 4. Surface Force and Friction effects of adsorbed layers and surface topography
