In this study, low-cost ceramic microsheet membranes with a thickness of sub-0.5 mm that possess superhydrophilic and underwater superoleophobic properties were fabricated from an Al2O3-rich Al2O3/polysulfone composite slurry via a phase inversion/sintering strategy. The cross-sectional morphologies of these phase inversion-induced composite films appear as ceramic green bodies that can be precisely controlled by tuning the operation parameters during the classic phase-inversion process of a polymer, which allows the morphology to withstand a subsequent sintering process that can reach temperatures as high as 1,250 &de...

Publication date: November 2019Source: European Polymer Journal, Volume 120Author(s): Ones Mansour, Taleen Peker, Sena Hamadi, Sabrina BelbekhoucheAbstractDeveloping “smart” systems that respond to chemical stimuli is of major interest. The physico-chemical properties of such a system would enable it to detect and respond to changes in the concentrations of targeted molecules. Saccharides are one member of a challenging class of chemical stimuli that are particularly important with respect to both medical applications and industrial processes. In this context, a new glucose-responsive, multilayer system based o...

Publication date: November 2019Source: Colloid and Interface Science Communications, Volume 33Author(s): Dong Liu, Ding Weng, Jiadao WangAbstractParticles such as nano-plastics at the air-liquid interface is harmful to the environment. Due to small size of the nanoparticles, expensive materials are needed to collect them such as ultrafiltration membranes. In our study, we propose an easy method to collect the nanoparticles at the air-liquid interface. Because surface tension of contaminated water is lower than that of deionized water, the surface tension gradient is used to transport the nanoparticles. In our study, we wet...

Publication date: Available online 13 September 2019Source: Materials Chemistry and PhysicsAuthor(s): Veereshgouda S. Naragund, P.K. PandaAbstractCellulose acetate (CA) nanofiber membrane was prepared by electrospinning method using solvent mixtures of methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) and N, N, - dimethylacetamide (DMAc) in different ratios (2:1, 1:1, 1:2) and also different concentration of CA (7-19%). MEK was selected in place of acetone due to its high boiling point, thereby, minimises the evaporation loss of the solvent enabling the longer duration of electrospinning. The morphology of electrospun nanofibers was observed by S...
