Ring-Banded Spherulitic Crystals of Poly(3-butylthiophene) via Controlled Solvent Evaporation

Armas, Jeremy A.; Reynolds, Karina J.; Marsh, Zachary M.; Stefik, Morgan; Scott, Gregory E.; Zhang, Shanju

The preparation of ring-banded spherulites in poly(3-butylthiophene) via controlled solvent evaporation of solution-cast films is reported. The spherulites display unusual concentric ring-banded structures under both polarized and unpolarized lights. The size of the ring-banded spherulites is 300 ± 100 µm in diameter and the periodicity of the bands is 15…

Flow-Induced Crystallization of Polyamide-6

Massaro, R.; Roozemond, P.; D’Haese, M.; Puyvelde, P. Van

Flow-induced crystallization has been widely studied for a variety of polymers with the main focus on polyolefins. In this work, research has been conducted on the flow-induced crystallization of another important class of polymers, namely polyamides. Different polyamides-6 with varying molecular weight have been studied. At relatively modest values of…

Effects of Urea and TMAO on Lipid Self-Assembly under Osmotic Stress Conditions

Pham, Quoc Dat; Wolde-Kidan, Amanuel; Gupta, Anirudh; Schlaich, Alexander; Schneck, Emanuel; Netz, Roland R.; Sparr, Emma

Most land-living organisms regularly experience dehydration. In nature, one commonly applied strategy to protect against this osmotic stress is to introduce small polar molecules with low vapor pressure, commonly called osmolytes. Two examples of naturally occurring small polar compounds are urea and trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO), which are known to have…

Tuning poly(arylene piperidinium) anion-exchange membranes by copolymerization, partial quaternization and crosslinking

Olsson, Joel S.; Pham, Thanh Huong; Jannasch, Patric

Ion exchange membranes with high ionic contents typically suffer from excessive water uptake and dilution effects which compromise both mechanical properties and anion conductivity. In the present work we develop and compare partial quaternization, copolymerization and crosslinking as three different synthetic strategies to balance the ion exchange capacity (IEC), water…
