Cure kinetics of liquid crystalline epoxy resins based on biphenyl mesogen
(Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry, 2014)
The cure kinetics of a biphenyl-based liquid crystalline (LC) epoxy resin (LCER) was studied using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and polarized optical microscopy. The effects of LC phase formation on the cure ...
Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Research at WSU
This presentation describes efforts at Washington State University to design and test liquid hydrogen-fueled unmanned aerial vehicles. It was presented to the Washington Congressional Staff on August 7, 2014, and the Spokane ...
Biorenewable ROMP-based thermosetting copolymers from functionalized castor oil derivative with various cross-linking agents
A new norbornenyl-functionalized castor oil alcohol (NCA) was synthesized and ring-opening metathesis copolymerized separately with two norbornene-based cross-linking agents: dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) and a bifunctional ...
Semi-interpenetrating polymer networks prepared from in situ cationic polymerization of bio-based tung oil with biodegradable polycaprolactone
(RSC Advances, 2014)
In situ cationic polymerization of bio-based tung oil in the presence of poly(ε-caprolactone), a crystallizable, biodegradable, and biocompatible polymer, was performed to produce novel semi-interpenetrating polymer networks ...
Tung oil-based thermosetting polymers for self-healing applications
(Journal of Applied Polymer Science, 2014)
Several bio-renewable thermosetting polymers were successfully prepared from tung oil through cationic polymerization for the use as the healing agent in self-healing microencapsulated applications. The tung oil triglyceride ...
Injection repair of carbon fiber/bismaleimide composite panels with bisphenol E cyanate ester resin
(Composites Science and Technology, 2014)
Resin injection of bisphenol E cyanate ester, a low viscosity resin that cures into a high temperature thermoset polymer, is investigated as a reliable repair method to restore strength and stiffness in delaminated carbon ...
Matrices from vegetable oils, cashew nut shell liquid, and other relevant systems for biocomposite applications
(Green Chemistry, 2014)
The partial replacement of petroleum-derived plastics and composites by novel bio-based materials from inexpensive, renewable, natural resources has the potential to greatly impact the plastics, coatings, and composites ...
Effect of silane structure on the properties of silanized multiwalled carbon nanotube-epoxy nanocomposites
Multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were functionalized with aminosilanes via an aqueous deposition route. The size and morphology of siloxane oligomers grafted to the MWCNTs was tuned by varying the silane functionality ...
Cryocompressed hydrogen storage and liquid delivery
(Department of Energy (DOE) Hydrogen Transmission and Distribution Workshop, 2/25/2014)
This presentation was created for the DOE H2 Transmission and Delivery Workshop on February 26, 2014.
Interfacial treatment effects on behavior of soft nano-composites for highly stretchable dielectrics
We investigate the influence of interfacial treatment on the matrix–filler interaction using a melt mixing process to fabricate robust and highly stretchable dielectrics. Silicone oil and silane coupling agent are studied ...
