    Author : Dongming Liu; Ulf Gedde; Mikael Hedenqvist; Richard Olsson; Linda Schadler; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HVDC; electrical insulation; core-shell nanoparticles; surface modification; silane chemistry; nanocomposites; polyethylene; adsorption; long-term stability; interface; particle dispersion; cavitation; conductivity; HVDC; elektrisk isolation; ytmodifiering; silankemi; nanokompositer; polyeten; adsorption; långtidsstabilitet; ytskikt; partikeldispergering; kavitation; ledningsförmåga; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) nanocomposites containing metal oxide nanoparticles are considered as promising candidates for insulating materials in future high-voltage direct-current (HVDC) cables. The significant improvement in dielectric properties compared with unfilled polymer is attributed to the large and active interface between the nanoparticles and the polymer. READ MORE

  2. 2. Sources and fate of plastic particles in northern European coastal waters

    Author : Therese Karlsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; plastic pollution; microplastics; method development; polyethylene; FTIR spectroscopy;

    Abstract : Plastics are integral parts of our lives and have allowed for important technological leaps within society. However, an unwanted consequence of our current consumption of plas-tics is marine plastic pollution and in order to reduce its impact we need to understand its sources and fate patterns. READ MORE

    Abstract : Power transmission over long distances by using high voltage direct current (HVDC) cables is important for the transition from fossil energy to using renewable energy sources, e.g. wind, solar and water. READ MORE

  4. 4. Long-term properties of polyethylene films : efficiency of a natural antioxidant

    Author : Clara Strandberg; Ann-Christine Albertsson; Jukka Seppälä; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Polymer Technology; alfa-tocopherol; Polyethylene PE ; Thermal aging; Infrared Spectroscopy FT-IR ; Chemiluminescence CL ; Solid-phase microextraction SPME ; Chemistry; Kemi;

    Abstract : There is a growing awareness of the risks of pollution in biological systems and one potential problem is the synthetic antioxidants, used for e.g. the stabilisation of polymeric materials. Natural antioxidants are an interesting alternative, if the high efficiency and thermal stability of the synthetic compounds can be reached. READ MORE
