Publisher and Date:(Elsevier Science SA, 2013)Oxygen permeabilities of nanocomposite films consisting of multi wall carbon nanotubes (MWNT) and polystyrene (PS) were determined to investigate the oxygen diffusion depending on MWNT and temperature. A method which is based on quenching of an excited phosphorescent by oxygen was applied for the measurements. The composite films were prepared from mixtures of (MWNT) and surfactant-free pyrene (P)-labeled (PS) latexes of various compositions at room temperature. These films were then annealed at ...
Publisher and Date:(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2015)The diffusion of oxygen into pyrene labelled polystyrene (PS) latex/poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) composite films (PS/PNIPAM) was studied based on PS content with the use of fluorescence quenching method. Fluorescence experiments were carried out on composite films containing pyrene as a sensor dye. The Stern-Volmer equation for fluorescence quenching is combined with Fick's law for diffusion to derive mathematical expressions. Diffusion coefficients (D) were produced and found to be decreased ...
Oxygen Diffusion into Multiwalled Carbon Nanotube Doped Polystrene Latex Films Using Fluorescence Technique Authors:
Publisher and Date:(Springer/Plenum Publishers, 2013)This study examines the oxygen diffusion into polystyrene (PS) latex/multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWNT) nanocomposite films (PS/MWNT) consisting of various amounts of MWNT via steady state fluorescence technique (SSF). PS/MWNT films were prepared from the mixture of MWNT and pyrene (P)-labeled PS latexes at various compositions at room temperature. These films were then annealed at 170 A degrees C above glass transition (T-g) temperature of PS. Fluorescence quenching measurements were performed ...
