Critical Exponents of Gelation and Conductivity in Polyacrylamide Gels Doped by Multiwalled Carbon Nanotubes Authors:
Publisher and Date:(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2010)Polyacrylamide (PAM) doped by multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWNT) gels were prepared with different amounts of MWNTs varying in the range between 0.1 and 15 wt%. The PAM-MWNT composite gels were characterized by the steady state fluorescence technique (SSF). The alternative electrical conductivity (AC) of PAM-MWNT composite gels was measured by the dielectric spectroscopy technique. Observations around the gel point t(gel) for PAM-MWNTs composite gels showed that the gel fraction exponent beta ...
Publisher and Date:(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2012)Polyacrylamide (PAAm)-multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWNT) composites were prepared via free radical cross-linking copolymerization with different amounts of MWNTs varying in the range between 0.1 and 50 wt%. The mechanical properties of swollen PAAm-MWNT composites were characterized by the tensile testing technique. A small content of embedded nanotubes dramatically changes the compressive elastic modulus of the composites. Compressive elastic modulus dramatically increases up to 1wt% MWNT on ...
Publisher and Date:(Taylor & Francis, 2009)The steady state fluorescence (SSF) technique was used to study the sol-gel phase transition during free radical crosslinking copolymerisation of various amounts of acrylamide (AAm) and N-isopropylacrylamide (NIPA) mixtures. NN'-methylenebis (acrylamide) (BIS) and ammonium persulfate (APS) were used as crosslinker and an initiator respectively. Pyranine (8-hydroxypyrene-1 3 6-trisulfonic acid trisodium salt HPTS) was added as a fluoroprobe for monitoring the polymerisation. It was observed that ...
