Mechanism of adsorption for design of role-specific polymeric surfactants

Polymeric surfactants, compared to low molecular weight surfactants, provide prolonged stability and help modify the system’s rheological properties. In recent years, many studies have been published on conjugation of various proteins and carbohydrates to come up with designer biopolymers with superior properties to already available ones. The path to better predict the behavior of surfactant polymers before attempting an application would be through fundamental understanding of the mechanism of adsorption. This review explains the mechanism of polymer adsorption in an all fluid systems by going over each of the crucial properties that a good surfactant should possess and explains interfacial phenomena considering the driving thermodynamic laws and molecular interactions. The review addresses readers with no prior knowledge on the subject and tries to provide them with fundamental knowledge on surfactant polymers’ behavior on interfaces.

Synthesis of Emulsion-Templated Acrylic-Based Porous Polymers: From Brittle to Elastomeric
Tunc, Yeliz; Hasırcı, Nesrin; ULUBAYRAM, KEZBAN (2012-01-01)
High internal phase emulsion polymers (PolyHIPEs) are novel materials that have high porosity and interconnected open-cell structure and are used in various applications such as supports for catalytic systems, media for separation of similar molecules, and scaffolds for tissue engineering. In this study, 90% porous acrylic based polyHIPE structures with various cellular structure and mechanical characteristics were developed by using stearyl acrylate (SA), isodecyl acrylate (IDA), isobornyl methacrylate (IB...

For many years, materials in the form of metal sulfides, oxides, phosphates, and titanates have been developed as cathode and anode active materials to be used in energy storage devices. Borides and borates, recently, attracted the attention of researchers in this field. In this study, for the development of a new class of materials for energy storage applications, synthesis and characterization of metal (Fe, Mo, Mn, and V) borides and (Mn, and Y)borates were carried out. The obtained materials were tested ...
Elastic-plastic deformation of a heat generating tube with temperature-dependent yield stress
Gulgec, M; Orcan, Y (2000-01-01)
The distribution of stress, plastic strain and displacement in an elastic-perfectly plastic tube with fixed ends in the presence of a uniform heat source is investigated analytically by taking into consideration the temperature dependence of the yield limit. The treatment is based on Tresca's yield condition and its associated flow rule. Depending on the radius ratio of the tube, in general, five different plastic regions, two of them corresponding to an edge regime of Tresca's prism, and an intermediate el...
Novel structured electrolytes for solid oxide fuel cells
TİMURKUTLUK, BORA; Celik, Selahattin; Timurkutluk, Cigdem; Mat, Mahmut D.; Kaplan, Yuksel (2012-09-01)
Novel grate type electrolytes are designed and fabricated to improve the cell performance and to lower the operation temperature of intermediate temperature electrolyte supported solid oxide fuel cells based on scandium and ceria stabilized zirconia by partly reducing the electrolyte thickness. The characteristics of three different small size cells (11.62 cm(2) active area) having various electrolyte designs are investigated. A standard electrolyte supported cell is also produced as a base case for compari...
Synthetic Design of Polyester Electrolytes Guided by Hydrophobicity Calculations
Yıldırım, Erol; Peretic, Matthew J.; Pasquinelli, Melissa A.; Mathers, Robert T. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2016-10-25)
Partition coefficients (LogP) help to quantify hydrophobicity, which can be used to guide the design of polymer electrolytes with properties. Thus, this study combined synthetic experiments and modeling to produce polyester electrolytes that solubilize lithium salts. These polyester electrolytes were derived from natural sources and polymerized with different ratios of polyols (diglycerol, glycerol, and diethylene glycol) and citric acid in the presence of lithium salts (LiTf and LiTFSI). The Fisher esterif...
