Stimuli-responsive polyglyoxylates as biodegradable polymers
Market for Biodegradable Polymers Most synthetic polymers are produced from petrochemicals and are not biodegradable. Conventional polymers such as polypropylene and polyethylene persist in the environment for many years, even after their disposal. The potential of biodegradable polymers to overcome such limitations has long been recognized. Under ...
Super-Hydrophobic and Super-Oleophobic Barrier Coating for Electronic Devices
Background: The electronics industry aims to deliver flexible, lightweight and inexpensive electronic products to consumers. The absence of effective barrier technologies meeting the water permeability demands is the single largest technical hurdle preventing the widespread commercialization of products such as organic solar cells (OPV), disposable...
Less Lethal Ammunitions for Peace Keeping
Background: Extensive research has been conducted in Canada and abroad on crowd control methods that are effective and that provide the greatest degree of safety possible for both the public and the police. For crowd control and peacekeeping missions there is both a need and pressure for less lethal ammunition. While there are alternative forms of ...
Polymer Nanocomposites via a One-Step Synthesis Method
Our inventors have created some unique polymer nanocomposites which can be formed in one step! Specifically, they have synthesized polyethylene matrices containing silica or titania particles, using supercritical CO2 and acetic acid as the condensation agent. This novel method provides the advantages of combining the nanocomposite synthesis and dry...
