Novel sulfonated ether based block copolymer ionomers as proton exchange membranes for fuel cells applications
This investigation studied the morphology, hydration, and transport properties of different membranes for direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) applications. First, sulfonated poly(ether ether ketone) (SPEEK) membranes were ...
Influence of interparticle magnetic interactions on heat dissipation in magnetic nanoparticles and magnetomicelles
Magnetically actuated nanovectors are prepared through the combination of magnetic nanoparticles and thermoresponsive materials that facilitate the release of the drug when heated at a temperature slightly above the normal ...
Poly(styrene-isobutylene-styrene) nanocomposite membranes for fuel cell devices and specialty separation applications
Ionic domains were incorporate into sulfonated poly(styrene–isobutylene–styrene) (SO3H SIBS) in an effort to improve the transport properties of the functionalized aromatic block copolymer. The resulting polymer nanocomposite ...
Polymeric nanocarriers for the enhancement of enzyme replacement therapy in lysosomal storage diseases: A proof of concept study
Lysosomal Storage Diseases (LSDs) are a group of inheritable genetic diseases caused by mutant lysosomal enzymes, leading to the accumulation of undigested macromolecules in the lysosomes and causing increases in lysosome ...
Synthesis and characterization of sulfonated amine block copolymer membranes for fuel cells and specialty separations applications
This work focuses on the synthesis and characterization of block copolymers membranes with multi-ionic domains to analyze the effect of the morphological and chemical changes on the transport properties for their use in ...
Functionalization and characterization of Sulfonated Poly (Styrene-Isobutylene-Styrene) membranes for fuel cells and specialty separation applications
In this study, the transport properties of poly(styrene-isobutylene-styrene) (SIBS) block copolymer were determined as a function of sulfonation level (0-94.9 %), counter ion substitution (Ba+2, Ca+2, Mg+2, Mn+2, Cu+2, ...
