In the first part of this study, poly(lactic acid)-poly(ethylene glycol), PLA-PEG, blends, composites and electrospun fibers of PLA and PLA composites, PLA-PEG blends and PLA-PEG, blends composites were prepared and characterized. X-ray Diffractometer (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM), Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC), Simultaneous Thermal Analyzer (STA) and Direct Pyrolysis Mass Spectrometer (DP-MS) techniques were used for characterization studies. Both TGA and DP-MS analyses of PLA-PEG blends involving 10, 15 and 20 wt% PEG pointed out that the thermal decomposition occurred mainly in two steps. An interaction between COOH groups of PLA and ether linkages of PEG due to blending process was detected. Addition of 20 wt% PEG decreased the tensile strength and tensile modulus of PLA while improving its ductility due to its plasticization effect. Enhancement in the chemical interactions between PLA and PEG in the presence of Cloisite 30B (C30B) was observed. Also, tensile strength, %elongation at break and Young’s modulus were increased compared to the corresponding blends. Fiber formation not only effected thermal degradation behaviors of PLA, PLA-PEG blends and corresponding composites but also affected the morphology. The intermolecular trans-esterification reactions were enhanced upon fiber formation. Better delamination and intercalation of PLA chains into clay layers of Cloisite 15A (C15A), Cloisite 20A (C20A) and C30B were detected. On the other hand, the interaction between PLA and PEG decreased and phase separation during the electrospinning process was recorded upon fiber generation. On the contrary, in the presence of C30B, the interactions between PLA and PEG were enhanced and the phase separation was not detected for PLA-PEG composite fibers. In the second part of this study, the use of direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry to characterize polymer/organoclay systems was discussed. DP-MS analyses of poly(lactic acid) (PLA), poly(methyl methacrylate), (PMMA) and poly(ethylene) (PE) composites involving organically modified montmorillonites C15A, C20A, C25A (Cloisite 25A), C93A, (Cloisite 93A) or C30B showed that the technique supplies strong evidences for the extent and type of dispersion of clay layers in the polymer matrices. In addition, the technique allows identification of possible interactions between the polymer and the organic modifier.

Improvement of organoclay dispersion into polystyrene-based nanocomposites by incorporation of SBS and maleic anhydride-grafted SBS
Dike, Ali Sinan; Yılmazer, Ülkü (SAGE Publications, 2020-04-01)
In this study, organoclay-containing polystyrene (PS)-based nanocomposites were fabricated by extrusion in the presence of thermoplastic elastomer modifiers. Styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS) rubber was used as the elastomeric compatibilizer and maleic anhydride (MA) was grafted onto SBS rubber at different ratios. Grafting was made via melt blending. Cloisite (R) 30B was used as the organoclay and it was added to PS and PS/SBS blends using a corotating twin-screw extruder, followed by injection molding. Clay...
Performance of Acidic MCM-Like Aluminosilicate Catalysts in Pyrolysis of Polypropylene
Obali, Zeynep; Sezgi, Naime Aslı; Doğu, Timur (2009-01-01)
Mesoporous aluminosilicate catalysts having different Al/Si ratios were synthesized following a hydrothermal synthesis route and using different aluminum sources, such as aluminum nitrate and aluminum isopropoxide. These mesoporous materials have high surface areas, in the range of 520-1001 m(2)/g, and exhibit Type IV nitrogen adsorption isotherms. EDS and Al-27 MAS NMR results showed that aluminum was incorporated more effectively into the structure of the catalyst forming a tetrahedral framework when alum...
Fabrication of microporous ceramics from ceramic powders of quartz-natural zeolite mixtures
San, O; Abali, S; Hoşten, Çetin (Elsevier BV, 2003-01-01)
The possibility of producing ceramic powders suitable for the fabrication of microporous filters was investigated through the thermal treatment of the powder mixtures of a high-purity (99.09% SiO2) quartz and clinoptilolite type of natural zeolite. The quartz and zeolite, mixed in the ratio of 3:1 by weight, was wet ground in a ball mill, the powder was sieved on a 90-mum screen, and the undersize was dried and sintered in the powder form at the temperatures of 1000, 1100 and 1200degreesC for 7 h in an air ...
Fabrication of gallic acid loaded Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose nanofibers by electrospinning technique as active packaging material
Aydogdu, Ayca; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (Elsevier BV, 2019-03-15)
The objective of this study was to encapsulate gallic acid in Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC)/poly-ethylene oxide (PEO) blend nanofiber by using electrospinning and examine the usage of nanofibers as active packaging materials. Gallic acid loaded nanofibers showed homogenous morphology. Gallic acid was loaded into nanofibers efficiently and nanofibers showed strong antioxidant activity. As the gallic acid amount increased, the TGA curves had shifted one stage to two stage degradation and degradation te...
