Thermomechanical and Conductive Properties of Thiol–Ene Poly(ionic liquid) Networks Containing Backbone and Pendant Imidazolium Groups

Bratton, Abigail F.; Kim, Sung-Soo; Ellison, Christopher J.; Miller, Kevin M.

A series of covalently cross-linked poly(ionic liquid) networks were prepared using thiol–ene “click” photopolymerization. In these networks, imidazolium groups are placed in the backbone and pendant to the main chain, creating a “hybrid”-type network architecture. The pendant imidazolium groups were incorporated into the networks from monofunctional “ene” monomers that contained…

High molecular weight poly(butylene succinate-co-furandicarboxylate) with 10mol% of BF unit: Synthesis, crystallization-melting behavior and mechanical properties

Peng, Shuangbao; Bu, Zhiyang; Wu, Linbo; Li, Bo-Geng; Dubois, Philippe

In this study, high molecular weight poly(butylene succinate-co-furandicarboxylate) with 10mol% of butylene furandicarboxylate unit (PBSF10) was synthesized and its crystal structure and crystallization-melting behaviors were investigated by means of WAXD, SAXS, DSC and POM. The tensile properties were also assessed. The crystal structure of PBSF10 is found to be the…
