Preparation and barrier properties of chitosan-layered silicate nanocomposite films
(Wiley-VCH Verlag, 2010-12)
In this study, chitosan nanocomposite films were prepared using a solvent-casting method by incorporation of an organically modified montmorillonite (Cloisite 10A). The effect of filler concentration on the water vapor ...
Propylene epoxidation: High-throughput screening of supported metal catalysts combinatorially prepared by rapid sol-gel method
The gas phase oxidation of propylene using molecular oxygen was studied on a variety of supported metal catalysts. The most promising PO activity was obtained for Cu supported on high surface area SiO 2 and the multimetallic ...
Characterization of poly(vinyl chloride) powder produced by emulsion polymerization
The effect of emulsion process formulation ingredients on the morphology, structure, and properties of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) powder has been considered in this study. PVC powder was extracted with ethanol and films were ...
Thermal behaviour of metal soaps from biodegradable rubber seed oil
Soaps are a class of surface active compounds derived from natural oils and fats. Double decomposition reactions permit the synthesis of metallic soaps, which are long-chain carboxylates of metal ions, from alkaline ones ...
