  1. 1. Fabrication of polymeric microfluidic devices via photocurable liquid monomers

    Author : Klas Tommy Haraldsson; Mats K. G. Johansson; Ken Carter; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Photopolymerization; radical photopolymerization; polymerization kinetics; photoinitiation; vinyl ether; maleate; vinyloxy; Polymer chemistry; Polymerkemi;

    Abstract : Microfluidic devices have long been considered an ideal tool for rapid and inexpensive chemical analysis and reactions in areas ranging from point-of-care health to national security applications. However, fabricating microfluidic devices is time consuming, difficult and above all expensive. READ MORE

  2. 2. Exploring bio-based monomers for UV-curable polymer networks

    Author : Sara Brännström; Eva Malmström; Yves Leterrier; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bio-based; polymers; vinyl ether; polyester; photopolymerization; lipase; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : Increased environmental awareness and concern has led to a high demand for sustainable, bio-based materials. Consequently, there is a need for research and development of new bio-based polymeric materials that can be synthesized via routes eliminating excessively toxic reactants and by-products. READ MORE

  3. 3. Thiol−ene Coupling of Renewable Monomers : at the forefront of bio-based polymeric materials

    Author : Mauro Claudino; Mats K. G. Johansson; Mats Jonsson; Anna Wistrand; Sven Göthe; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Thiol-ene chemistry; monounsaturated fatty-acids; renewable resources; cis trans-isomerization; photopolymerization; networks; polyesters; thermal viscoelastic properties; thin-films; unsaturated macro lactones; coatings;

    Abstract : Plant derived oils bear intrinsic double-bond functionality that can be utilized directly for the thiol–ene reaction. Although terminal unsaturations are far more reactive than internal ones, studies on the reversible addition of thiyl radicals to 1,2-disubstituted alkenes show that this is an important reaction.

  4. 4. Signal Enhancement by Dynamic Polymers in Quartz Crystal Microbalance Applications

    Author : Gunnar Dunér; Olof Ramström; Ian Nicholls; Andra Dedinaite; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Signal enhancement; QCM; polyelectrolytes; hydrogel; iniferter; photopolymerization; dynamic polymers; Chemistry; Kemi;

    Abstract :  This licentiate thesis presents studies of signal enhancement by dynamic polymers in quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) applications. The aim of the study has been to determine the potential for the use of polymers on QCM sensors for signal enhancement in molecular interaction studies. READ MORE

  5. 5. Photocuring of multifunctional monomers initiated by camphorquinone/amine systems for application in dental restorative resins

    Author : Nie Jun; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Photocuring; Dental restorative resins; Photoinitiator system: Cainphorquinone amines; Monomers: Meth acrylates; Photoinitiated polymerization kinetics;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the photopolymerization of mono-, di- and trifunctional monomers initiated by carnphorquinone (CQ) alone and/or with different amines (AMH) as coinitiators in air as well in nitrogen. The kinetics of photopolymerization was measured by photoisothermal calorimetry (photo-DSC), which allowed the measurement of the rate of polymerization (Rp), maximum rate of polymerization (Rpmax), time of inhibition (tinh), time at which Rpmax was obtained (tmax), double bond conversion (p) and maximum double bond conversion (pmax).
