  2. 2. Hydrophobic and superhydrophobic coatings for corrosion protection of steel

    Författare :Lina Ejenstam; Per M. Claesson; Agne Swerin; Jinshan Pan; Orlando Rojas; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :Superhydrophobic coating; hydrophobic coating; corrosion protection; contact angles; electrochemical measurements; surface characterization; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Sammanfattning : Since metals in general, and steels in particular, are vital construction materials in our modern society, the corrosion protection of said materials is of great importance, both to ensure safety and to reduce costs associated to corrosion. Previously, chromium (VI) and other harmful substances were effectively used to provide corrosion protection to steel, but since their use was heavily regulated around year 2000, no coating has yet been developed that, in a fully satisfactory manner, replaces their corrosion protective properties.

  3. 3. Superhydrophobic coatings of wax and polymers sprayed from supercritical solutions

    Författare :Louise Ovaskainen; Lars Wågberg; Charlotta Turner; Eric Beckman; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; superhydrophobic coatings; polymer; wax; supercritical carbon dioxde; RESS; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Sammanfattning : The possibility of using supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO2) as the primary solvent in a spray process for producing superhydrophobic surfaces have been examined in this work. Using scCO2 as solvent will have considerably lower environmental impact compared to an organic solvent since scCO2 is considered a green solvent as it is non-toxic, non-flammable and recyclable.

  5. 5. Tailoring Surface Properties of Bio-Fibers via Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization

    Författare :Josefina Lindqvist; Eva Malmström; Steven Rannard; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cellulose; bio-fiber; atom transfer radical polymerization; surface modification; grafting; polymer brushes; functional surfaces; superhydrophobic; stimuli-responsive; Polymer chemistry; Polymerkemi;

    Sammanfattning : The potential use of renewable, bio-based polymers in high-technological applications has attracted great interest due to increased environmental concern. Cellulose is the most abundant biopolymer resource in the world, and it has great potential to be modified to suit new application areas. LÄS MER
