Effect of surface modification of colloidal silica nanoparticles on the rigid amorphous fraction and mechanical properties of amorphous polyurethane-urea-silica nanocomposites
Colloidal silica nanoparticles (NPs) modified with eight different silane coupling agents were incorporated into an amorphous poly(tetramethylene oxide)-based polyurethane-urea copolymer matrix at a concentration of 10 wt ...
Superhydrophobic hybrid paper sheets with janus-type wettability
(Amer Chemical Soc, 2018)
We introduce the design of Janus-type paper sheets where one side of the paper exhibits superhydrophobic properties, whereas the other side of the sheet remains hydrophilic and therefore can take up aqueous solutions by ...
Superhydrophobic polymer surfaces: preparation, properties, and applications
(Smithers Rapra Technology, 2016)
Surface properties have critical roles in determination of the durability and overall performance of polymeric materials for applications in many fields. Recent investigations on naturally superhydrophobic surfaces such ...
