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:(Elsevier Science Bv, 2016)This paper addresses the controlled variation of the mechanical properties of alginate gel beads by changing the alginate concentration or by adding different surfactants or cross-linking cations. Alginate beads containing nonionic Brij 35 or anionic sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) surfactants were prepared with two different types of cations (Ca2+ Ba2+) as crosslinkers. Compression measurements were performed to investigate the effect of the surfactant and cation types and their concentrations on ...
