Investigation of oxygen permeation through composites of PMMA and surface-modified ZnO nanoparticles
(Wiley-VCH Verlag, 2009-02-18)
Oxygen permeabilities of nanocomposite films consisting of poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) and different amounts of spherical zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles were determined to investigate the barrier effect of this material ...
Polymers and inorganics: A happy marriage?
The most recent developments in two areas: (a) synthesis of inorganic particles with control over size and shape by polymer additives, and (b) synthesis of inorganic-polymer hybrid materials by bulk polymerization of blends ...
Precipitation of monodisperse ZnO nanocrystals via acid-catalyzed esterification of zinc acetate
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2006)
A wet-chemical method to produce zinc oxide nanocrystals of monodisperse size distribution (diameter range of 20-80 nm) is presented. The synthesis starts from zinc acetate dihydrate which is converted to ZnO in the presence ...
PMMA/zinc oxide nanocomposites prepared by in-situ bulk polymerization
(Wiley-VCH Verlag, 2006-05-19)
Dispersing surface-modified zinc oxide nano-particles (ZnO) in methyl methacrylate (MMA) improves the free radical bulk polymerization process as well as the thermal stability of the formed polymer. Hydroxy groups available ...
Challenges in the preparation of optical polymer composites with nanosized pigment particles: A review on recent efforts
(Wiley-VCH Verlag, 2012-09)
Blends of nanosized pigment particles and polymers are widely believed to offer the potential for the design of novel or at least improved materials. This review critically evaluates the recent literature with regard to ...
