Effects of Interconnected Polymer Nanopores Leading to Different Degrees of Confined Polymerization

Wang, Kui; Lei, Jinhua; Nie, Heran; Shen, Lu; Chen, Peng; Zhou, Guangyuan

In this study, different degrees of ethylene-confined polymerization (non-confined, slightly confined, and highly confined) are presented in porous polymer microspheres (PPMs) with an interconnected tri-modal pore structure. First, three catalysts, Cp2ZrCl2, Cp2TiCl2, and TiCl4, are attached to the interface of PPMs to form a nano-confined space for ethylene polymerization. Then…

Liquid crystal phantom for validation of microscopic diffusion anisotropy measurements on clinical MRI systems

Nilsson, Markus; Larsson, Johan; Lundberg, Dan; Szczepankiewicz, Filip; Witzel, Thomas; Westin, Carl-Fredrik; Bryskhe, Karin; Topgaard, Daniel

Purpose To develop a phantom for validating MRI pulse sequences and data processing methods to quantify microscopic diffusion anisotropy in the human brain. Methods Using a liquid crystal consisting of water, detergent, and hydrocarbon, we designed a 0.5-L spherical phantom showing the theoretically highest possible degree of microscopic anisotropy. Data…

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…
