  1. 1. Polymer/polymer blends in organic photovoltaic and photodiode devices

    Author : Yuxin Xia; Olle Inganäs; Ergang Wang; Hin-Lap Yip; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : Organic photovoltaics devices (OPV) have attracted attentions of scientist for their potential as inexpensive, lightweight, flexible and suitable for roll-to-roll production. In recent years, considerable attention has been focused on new acceptor materials, either polymeric or small molecules, to replace the once dominating fullerene derivatives. READ MORE

  2. 2. Interphases in Polymer Blends

    Author : Hans Eklind; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : morphology; interdiffusion; compatibilization; characterization; interfacial interaction; mobility; micromechanical transition; dynamic mechanical properties; interphase; polymer blend;

    Abstract : The blending of polymers is a useful means of combining and improving the properties of already existing polymers in the development of new materials at reasonable cost. As most polymers are immiscible with each other, heterogeneous blends are often formed. The properties of such blends are strongly determined by the properties of the interphase. READ MORE

  3. 3. Filler Controlled Morphology in Polymer Blends

    Author : Anders L. Persson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : filled polymer blends; Lewis acid-base properties; co-continuous; rheokinetics; viscosity minimation; polymer solid interactions; crystallinity gradient;

    Abstract : The morphology of a polymer blend can be altered very dramatically when a filler is added. Depending on the mutual interactions of the polymers and their individual interactions with the filler, many different filler distributions are possible. READ MORE

  4. 4. Lithium Ion Conductive Membranes Based on Co-continuous Polymer Blends

    Author : Anette Munch Elmér; Centrum för analys och syntes; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Polymerteknik; Polymer technology; biopolymers; conductivity measurements; in-situ UV-polymerisation; solution casting; poly methyl methacrylate ; vinylidene fluoride copolymers; poly ethylene carbonate-co-ethylene oxide methacrylate; PEG methacrylate macromonomers; heterogeneous polymer blends; polymer electrolyte membranes; lithium salt containing gels;

    Abstract : There is a growing need for multifunctional polymeric materials for the development of several important energy conversion technologies. For example, the polymer electrolyte is a key component in lithium polymer batteries. The basic functions of this electrolyte are to efficiently conduct the lithium ions and physically separate the electrodes. READ MORE

  5. 5. Poly(ethylene-graft-ethylene oxide) Preparation and Properties in Polymer Blends

    Author : Åsa Halldén; Centrum för analys och syntes; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Surface modification; Graft copolymers; Polymer blends; Polyethylene; Polyethylene oxide; Polyamide; Polymer technology; biopolymers; Polymerteknik;

    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.
