    An important goal would be to use the simulations to isolate signatures for a specific failure mode. The processes occurring at such interfaces control corrosion and biofouling of ship hulls, affect the reflection and scattering of electromagnetic and sound waves, and determine the mechanical properties e. All essential information required for the decision-making process is presented in a clear way in order to provide the reader with the necessary data. With the advent of fast workstations, many computationally intensive simulations can now be carried out on reasonable time scales. For example, elastomers, particularly those that cannot undergo strain-induced crystallization, are compounded with a reinforcing filler such as silica to improve abrasion resistance, tear strength, and tensile strength. Reinforcing ability has been demonstrated by this approach, but much remains to be done in elucidation of properties, e.

    This section results from a review of thousands of patents and research papers, and information available from manufacturers of polymers and additives. The processes and mechanisms for these improvements are still poorly understood. This book, with its newest updated second edition, will remain as a reference textbook for many years to come. The different chapters describe detailed and clear mathematical developments, experimental presentations and high quality numerical work presented with superb clarity.

    Near-field scanning optical microscopy promises eventually to allow various optical spectroscopies to be done on polymer surfaces with lateral resolutions as small as 10 nm. Currently, only biological systems in vivo or in vitro can control monomer sequence efficiently. The main objective of PIC is to develop methodologies and metrologies for testing, characterization, and modeling of surface and interphase of polymeric coatings and plastics. Kowalczyk, R. Jackson, C.

Polymers at surfaces and interfaces book

This is a preview of subscription content, log in to check access. Tethered polymer chains in solutions and melts; 7. Scanning force microscopy SFM also called atomic force microscopy is now in common use to reveal surface topology.

This section results from a review of thousands of patents and research papers, and information available from manufacturers of polymers and additives. Davies, D. Polymer-inorganic and polymer-polymer interfaces can also have a great impact on naval materials.

Brown, K. Furthermore, recent studies have demonstrated the power of simulations to predict polymer properties, especially at interfaces and in solution.

Polymer Surface and Interface Characterization Techniques

Surfaces that are hydrophobic in air can become hydrophilic in water; interfaces that initially have low adhesion with marine organisms can reconstruct when they come into contact with such organisms to produce much stronger adhesion.

Kolb, K. Recommendations for selection of proper parameters to assess scratch resistance. With the development of new catalyst systems, living polymerization methods, and biosynthetic routes to new polymers, a high level of control of molecular architecture has been achieved.

This is for instance true for inhomogeneous polymer blends, where the interface between different phases plays a crucial role for mechanical properties, or for the application of ultra-strength composite materials in airplanes, where adhesion between material layers is essential.

Supramolecular Chemistry The design and synthesis of polymeric materials as described above have traditionally focused on the covalent structure of the chain. Several chapters have been updated relative to the classic edition. Cost and environmental issues related not only to syntheses but also to disposal or recycling are becoming increasingly important and will pose significant problems for the Navy and opportunities for NRL research.

Kreusel, M. NRL is well positioned to participate in the development of new materials based on supramolecular interactions. Major opportunities also exist for upgrading the less expensive commodity-type materials to compete more effectively with new engineered structures, and this will be done by stereochemical design and morphological control in homopolymer, copolymer, and blend systems.

The NRL's elastomer research program might consider precipitating reinforcing fillers into polymers prior to and also after the formation of network structures. Another area in which computer simulations are useful is in modeling polymer self-assembly in solution. This is in particular the case, when functional or smart surfaces or interfaces are desired, which for instance provide biocompatibility, switching or adaptive properties.

There is a very long way to go, but this frontier area clearly represents the great opportunity in polymer synthesis.

In regard to the programmatic emphasis placed on these areas, the panel recognized that priorities are to be established by the NRL. Morra, E. Preview Unable to display preview.

Ito, L. The past 10 years have seen developments such as group transfer polymerization, ring-opening metathesis for cyclic hydrocarbons, improved cationic and anionic techniques for molecular weight control, and new biosynthetic routes.

For example, recent theoretical work has demonstrated the similarity of the thermodynamics that controls phase behavior and that which controls pattern selection in phospholipid bilayers and in multiphase block copolymers, and vesicular structures—known for many years in aqueous surfactant chemistry—have been identified in seemingly dissimilar styrene-diene-block copolymers in the absence of solvent.Oct 22,  · Physics of Polymer Surfaces and Interfaces emphasizes current theoretical ideas and modern experimental tools for characterizing the physical properties of polymer surfaces and interfaces.

Foremost are their important roles in polymer technology throughthe processes of wetting, adhesion, adsorption, and through their effect on the kinetics of Book Edition: 1. This text deals from a fundamental viewpoint with the behaviour of polymers at surfaces and interfaces.
