Novel thermo-responsive hydrophilic microspheres were prepared by free radical polymerization of methacrylate bovine serum albumin and N -isopropylacrylamide, as cross-linker and functional monomer, respectively. The incorporation of monomers in the network was confirmed by infrared spectroscopy,...
We report on the formation of colloidal complexes resulting from the electrostatic co-assembly between anionic surfactants and cationic polyelectrolytes or block copolymers. Combining light and X-ray scattering experiments with cryogenic transmission and optical microscopy, we emphasize a feature...
CuO shuttle-like and flower-like nanocrystals were synthesized through a one-step, low-temperature solution-phase method in the presence of a cation surfactant, hexadecyl trimethyl ammonium bromide. These nanocrystals were studied as an additive for promoting the thermal decomposition of ammonium...
Submicron fibers of medium-molecular-weight poly(vinyl alcohol) (MMW-PVA), high-molecular-weight poly(vinyl alcohol) (HMW-PVA), and montmorillonite clay (MMT) in aqueous solutions were prepared by electrospinning technique. The effect of HMW-PVA and MMT on the morphology and mechanical properties...
