Estimation of yttrium oxide microstructural parameters using the Williamson-Hall analysis
(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2018)
Yttrium oxide (Y2O3) particles were synthesised from a yttrium nitrate solution via ultrasonic spray pyrolysis (USP) method. The effects of temperature and precursor concentration on morphology and microstructural parameters ...
Electrochemical readout of molecularly imprinted polymers: potentials and challenges
Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) are one of the most frequently studied alternative recognition elements in chromatography and sensorics. They are prepared by polymerizing the target analyte (socalled template) and ...
From superhydrophilic to superhydrophobic: tunable wetting of polymer surfaces through the use of fumed silica
A simple process and a general method was developed for the preparation of polymeric materials with controlled surface wettability. Method is applicable to a wide range of polymeric materials, thermoplastic or thermoset. ...
Superhydrophobic hybrid paper sheets with janus-type wettability
Hybrid paper sheets, paper based materials composed of organic and inorganic constituents, with Janus type wetting properties were prepared. One side of the sheet was superhydrophobic whereas the untreated side preserved ...
Influence of coating method on the formation of superhydrophobic silicone-urea surfaces modified with fumed silica nanoparticles
Effect of the coating method on the formation of superhydrophobic polydimethylsiloxane-urea (TPSC) copolymer surfaces, modified by the incorporation of hydrophobic fumed silica nanoparticles were investigated. Four different ...
Simple processes for the preparation of superhydrophobic polymer surfaces
Two simple processes; spin-coating, and doctor blade coating of silica/polymer dispersions are described for the preparation of superhydrophobic polymer surfaces. To demonstrate the versatility and broad applicability of ...
