Progression of the Morphology in Random Ionomers Containing Bulky Ammonium Counterions

Enokida, Joshua S.; Tanna, Vijesh A.; Winter, H. Henning; Coughlin, E. Bryan

Poly(isoprene-ran-dimethyloctylammonium styrenesulfonate) (P(I-ran-DMOASS)) copolymers with high molecular weights and dimethyloctylammonium styrenesulfonate (DMOASS) compositions ranging between 8 and 40 mol % (30 and 77 wt %) were synthesized via nitroxide-mediated polymerization. Thermal and viscoelastic characterization revealed distinct behaviors for the low (30–51 wt %) and high (56–77 wt…

Studies on the 3-Lamellar Morphology of Miktoarm Terpolymers

Kim, Hyeyoung; Arras, Matthias M. L.; Mahalik, J. P.; Wang, Weiyu; Yu, Duk Man; Chernyy, Sergey; Goswami, Monojoy; Kumar, Rajeev; Sumpter, Bobby G.; Hong, Kunlun; Smith, Gregory S.; Russell, Thomas P.

The morphologies of ABC miktoarm star terpolymer consisting of polystyrene (PS), polyisoprene (PI), and poly(2-vinylpyridine) (P2VP) were studied by combining small-angle neutron and X-ray scattering (SANS and SAXS) and transmission electron microscopy. We find that this system displays a rich morphological behavior including an alternate lamellar (ALT.LAM), cylinder in undulated lamellar…

Highly Efficient Luminescent Liquid Crystal with Aggregation-Induced Energy Transfer

Liu, Yi; You, Li Hong; Lin, Fa Xu; Fu, Kuo; Yuan, Wang Zhang; Chen, Er-Qiang; Yu, Zhen-Qiang; Tang, Ben Zhong

A luminescent liquid crystal molecule (TPEMes) with efficient solid-state emission is rationally constructed via the chemical conjugation of blue-emitting tetraphenylethene cores and luminescent mesogenic tolane moieties, which are both featured with aggregation-induced emission properties. As for this fluorophore, aggregation-induced energy transfer from the emissive tolane mesogens to the…
