  • Polymer/carbon nanotube composite film formation: A fluorescence study 

    Authors:Yargı, Önder; Uğur, Saziye; Pekcan, Önder
    Publisher and Date:(Wiley-Blackwell, 2014)
    In this study the effect of multi-walled Carbon nanotube (MWNT) on film formation behavior of Polystrene (PS) latex film was investigated by using steady state fluorescence technique. Films were prepared by mixing of pyrene (P)-labeled PS latex with different amounts of MWNTs varying in the range between 0 and 20 wt%. After drying MWNT containing films were separately annealed above glass transition temperature (T-g) of PS ranging from 100 to 270 degrees C for 10 min. In order to monitor film ...

  • Study of Film Formation From PS Latex/TiO2 Nanocomposites 

    Authors:Uğur, Saziye; Sunay, M. Selin; Pekcan, Önder

    In this work we investigated the film formation from polystyrene (PS) latex/TiO2 nanocomposites using the steady state fluorescence (SSF) and UV-vis (UVV) techniques depending on PS particle size and TiO2 content. The structural properties of films were characterized by scanning electron microscope (SEM). The films were prepared from pyrene (P)-labeled PS particles (SmPS: 203 nm
