  1. 1. Free Volume Depth Profiling at Polymer Surfaces and Interfaces

    Författare :John Algers; Centrum för analys och syntes; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; biopolymers; Polymerteknik; Polymer technology; polymer interfaces; polymer surfaces; positron lifetime; free volume;

    Sammanfattning : Pulsed low energy positron beams provide a unique and non-destructive tool to depth probe the free volume of polymers at surfaces and interfaces. Since the employment of low energy positron beams in polymer research is an emerging technique, some focus in this thesis has been on extracting methods and equations needed to interpret the experimental data.

    Sammanfattning : Due to climate change and plastic pollution, there is an increasing demand for bio-based materials with similar properties to those of common plastics yet biodegradable. In this respect, cellulose is a strong candidate that is already being refined on a large industrial scale, but the properties differ significantly from those of common plastics in terms of shapeability and water-resilience.

  3. 3. Mass Transport Through Polymer Films: The Importance of Interfaces and Compatibility

    Författare :Sofie Gårdebjer; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Cellulose; Barriers; Surface modification; Compatibility; Interfaces; Polymer films;

    Sammanfattning : Different types of barriers are used in packaging to keep and protect products from the surrounding environment and are often essential for storing and transportation. Today, many barriers are made of different types of polymers, but since most polymers do not exhibit desired barrier properties on their own, combinations must be used. LÄS MER

  4. 4. From Responsive Interfaces to Honeycomb Membranes by Controlled Radical Polymerisation

    Författare :Daniel Nyström; Anders Hult; Søren Hvilsted; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Isoporous membranes; Silica nanoparticles; ATRP; Functional surfaces; cellulose; Polymer chemistry; Polymerkemi;

    Sammanfattning : In this study, surface modification of both organic and inorganic substrates (in terms of cellulose and silica nanoparticles, respectively) has been explored using surface-initiated atom transfer radical polymerisation (ATRP). The desire to modify bio-based materials to fit into new application areas and the need for bio-based materials with improved material properties is steadily increasing due to environmental concern.

  5. 5. Mass-Transport through Interfaces

    Författare :Sofie Gårdebjer; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; poly 3-hydroxybutyrate ; permeability; diffusion cells; poly lactide-co-glycolide acid ; mass-transport; polyethylene; poly lactic acid ; ethylene acrylic acid; interfaces; cellulose;

    Sammanfattning : Many of the products in our daily life consist of layered structures, where packaging materials and wound care products can be mentioned as examples. These structures often consist of different kind of polymeric materials and between these materials interfaces are formed. LÄS MER
