      Transparent and super-gas-barrier PET film with surface coated by a polyelectrolyte and Borax, Published online: 15 January 2018; doi:10.1038/s41428-017-0015-5

      By simply coating a thin layer of 4,4’-diphenylmethane diisocyanate, polyacrylic acid and borax on the surface of PET film, a transparent PET film with extremely low gas vapor barrier value can be obtained. The oxygen transmission rate can be dramatically decreased to the detection limit of commercial instrumentation (<0.005 cc/m2/day).Transparent and super-gas-barrier PET film with surface coated by a polyelectrolyte and Borax, Published online: 2018-01-15; doi:10.1038/s41428-017-0015-52018-01-15

      Synthesis of CO2-derived polycarbonates with high glass transition temperatures, Published online: 15 January 2018; doi:10.1038/s41428-017-0020-8

      To synthesize CO2-derived polycarbonates with high Tg values, epoxides having rigid and bulky 2-norbornyl or 1-adamantyl substituents were selected as comonomers. The alternating copolymer obtained from 1-adamantylethylene oxide showed a Tg above 150 °C. This is the highest Tg among those observed for alternating copolymers obtained from CO2 and a terminal epoxide.Synthesis of CO2-derived polycarbonates with high glass transition temperatures, Published online: 2018-01-15; doi:10.1038/s41428-017-0020-82018-01-15

      An efficient method to decrease dielectric constant (ɛ) of poly(2,6-dihydroxy-1,5-naphthylene) (PDHN) by introducing bulky alkyl side chains was reported. Poly(2,6-dialkoxy-1,5-naphthylene)s (PDANs) were prepared by the O-alkylation of PDHN with alkyl halides. The ɛ values of PDANs at 10 GHz decreased as the length and size of side chains increased. Especially, PDCHMN exhibited the lowest dielectric constant (ɛ = 2.29). The ε value results were also supported by refractive index measurement.Synthesis and characterization of poly(2,6-dialkoxy-1,5-naphthylene)s with low dielectric constants, Published online: 2018-01-15; doi:10.1038/s41428-017-0011-92018-01-15

      Synthesis, properties and structure of borafluorene-based conjugated polymers with kinetically and thermodynamically stabilized tetracoordinated boron atoms, Published online: 09 January 2018; doi:10.1038/s41428-017-0002-x

      Synthesis and properties of borafluorene-containing conjugated polymers with various comonomers are presented. From the comparison with the gallafluorene copolymers, higher luminescent quantum yields were obtained from the borafluorene copolymers. Additionally, from the electrochemical measurements, it was shown that the electron-withdrawing property of the boron atoms led to the stabilization of LUMOs of the borafluorene copolymers. In the X-ray diffraction profiles, the significant peaks originated from π−π stacking and assembly of the side chains were observed. The borafluorene copolymers were more crystalline materials relative to the gallafluorene polymers.Synthesis, properties and structure of borafluorene-based conjugated polymers with kinetically and thermodynamically stabilized tetracoordinated boron atoms, Published online: 2018-01-09; doi:10.1038/s41428-017-0002-x2018-01-09

    • A facile method for the controlled polymerization of biocompatible and thermoresponsive oligo(ethylene glycol) methyl ether methacrylate copolymers

      A facile method for the controlled polymerization of biocompatible and thermoresponsive oligo(ethylene glycol) methyl ether methacrylate copolymers, Published online: 09 January 2018; doi:10.1038/s41428-017-0004-8

      The thermoresponsive copolymer P(MEO2MA-co-OEGMA500) was successfully prepared using a novel photopolymerization procedure. The synthesis was carried out using a user-friendly method with a few ppm of a photoredox iridium-based catalyst. Monomer conversions higher than 50% were achieved in less than 1 h of synthesis showing a faster polymerization rate when compared to the traditional Cu-based ATRP synthesis. The photochemically controlled method here described provides true control over polymer structure, architecture, and properties. Furthermore, the polymer showed no toxicity on four mammalian cell lines at the highest concentration tested (0.4 mg/ml).A facile method for the controlled polymerization of biocompatible and thermoresponsive oligo(ethylene glycol) methyl ether methacrylate copolymers, Published online: 2018-01-09; doi:10.1038/s41428-017-0004-82018-01-09

      Alkylated alkali lignin for compatibilizing agents of carbon fiber-reinforced plastics with polypropylene, Published online: 22 December 2017; doi:10.1038/s41428-017-0009-3

      Lignin-derived compatibilizing agents were developed for polypropylene-based carbon fiber-reinforced prastics. Introduction of acyl groups to alkali lignin improved compatibility of the lignin to both carbon fiber and polypropylene while underivatized alkali lignin did not show compatibility. The interfacial shear strength between carbon fiber and polypropylene was significantly improved by addition of the lignin derivatives as compatibilizing agents.Alkylated alkali lignin for compatibilizing agents of carbon fiber-reinforced plastics with polypropylene, Published online: 2017-12-22; doi:10.1038/s41428-017-0009-32017-12-22
