Block copolymer self-assembly fundamentals and applications in formulation of nano-structured fluids
Dispersions of nanoparticles in polymer matrices form hybrid materials that can exhibit superior structural and functional properties and find applications in e.g. thermo-plastics, electronics, polymer electrolytes, ...
Novel Polymeric Materials: Double-brush Copolymers and Polyelectrolyte Nanocages
This dissertation focuses on the development of two types of novel polymeric materials, brush polymers and polymeric nanocages. Brush polymers, which are also called densely grafted polymers or molecular brushes, can be ...
Block copolymer structuring in ionic liquids
Ionic liquid and block copolymer interactions as reflected in the structural characteristics of self-assembled microstructures are yet to be systematically investigated. Fundamental knowledge is required so as to specifically ...
