  • Polyelectrolytes for the Construction of Artificial Soils

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The effect of cationic polyelectrolyte poly(diallyldimethylammonium chloride), anionic polyelectrolyte potassium lignohumate, and their interpolyelectrolyte complex on the aggregate composition and phytotoxicity of constructozem, an artificially constructed soil, is investigated. The original constructozem is characterized by a wide range of structural aggregates with a high proportion of large particles. Addition of the polycation to the constructozem completely destroys large aggregates, while addition of the polyanion has almost no effect on particle size distribution. The polycomplex sharply reduces the proportion of large particles and blocks the appearance of small particles, thereby significantly increasing the content of agronomically valuable aggregates in the constructozem and, at the same time, stimulating the growth and development of plants.

  • Polymer Rheology in the Petroleum Industry

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The possibilities of using special rheological properties of polymers in the petrochemical industry, in particular, at the stage of oil production in the modification of drilling fluids and oil displacement, the transportation of oil in pipeline systems, and the modification of properties of main hydrocarbon products are considered. In all the cases, polymers with different compositions and structures are used as modifiers of the rheological properties of process fluids based on water or hydrocarbons. In addition to the control of the viscosity characteristics of these fluids, polymers promote the manifestation of elasticity of the solutions created which may play a significant role in optimizing the process. The aspects of the use of polymers for decreasing the hydrodynamic resistance during the pumping of oil in trunk pipelines are discussed in most detail. When discussing options of the application of polymers special attention is paid to the related environmental problems.

  • Networks of Micellar Chains with Nanoplates

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Nanocomposite networks of surfactant micellar chains and natural bentonite clay nanoplates are studied by rheometry, small-angle neutron scattering, and cryogenic transmission electron microscopy. It is shown that, in an aqueous medium in the presence of a small part of an anionic surfactant, sodium dodecyl sulfate, the molecules of a biodegradable zwitterionic surfactant, oleyl amidopropyl dimethyl carboxybetaine, form micron-length living micellar chains which entangle and form a network possessing well-defined viscoelastic properties. It is found that addition of negatively charged clay nanoplates leads to an increase in viscosity and relaxation time by an order of magnitude. This is explained by the incorporation of the nanoplates into the network as physical multifunctional crosslinks. The incorporation occurs via the attachment of semispherical end-caps of the micelles to the surface of the particles covered with a surfactant layer, as visualized by cryogenic transmission electron microscopy. As the amount of nanoplates is increased, the rheological properties reach plateau; this is associated with the attachment of all end parts of micelles to nanoplates. The developed nanocomposite soft networks based on safe and eco-friendly components are promising for various practical applications.

  • Polymer Materials for Membrane Separation of Gas Mixtures Containing CO2

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In recent decades, the need to capture carbon dioxide from industrial gas streams, its storage, and utilization has been justified as a rule by environmental problems. However, the capture of CO2 from industrial gas mixtures is an independent important issue of chemical technology. The review addresses consideration and analysis of polymer materials for the membrane separation of CO2-containing mixtures which are of interest for purification of natural gas, biogas, and flue gases and separation of hydrogen from methane and water gas conversion products. Therefore, gas pairs CO2/CH4, CO2/N2, and CO2/H2 are relevant for membrane separation. Promising polymer materials should possess the beneficial combination of CO2 permeability and selectivity for the gas pair of interest, that is, should be located near the upper bound of the Robeson diagram or be above it. For separation of the first two gas pairs good gas-separation parameters are exhibited by rigid-chain highly permeable glassy polymers of various classes (polymers of intrinsic microporosity, polyimides, polynorbornenes, polybenzoxazoles). For separation of the gas pair CO2/N2 the most advantageous properties are shown by polymers bearing functional groups capable of specific interactions with carbon dioxide (aliphatic polyethers and polyimides with their oligomer moieties, polynorbornenes carrying Si‒O–C and Si–O–Si groups, polymers with ionogenic groups). Thermally stable barrier polymers based on polybenzoxazoles show promise for purification of hydrogen from carbon dioxide at high temperatures.

  • Morphological Transformations in the Process of Coagulation of Cellulose
           Solution in N-Methylmorpholine N-Oxide with Isobutanol

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Evolution of the morphology of cellulose solutions in N-methylmorpholine-N-oxide during coagulation with a “soft” coagulant, isobutyl alcohol, at different temperatures is considered. Using optical interferometry and transmitted and scanning electron microscopy the mechanism of phase separation of the system to form a polymer phase is studied depending on the temperature of alcohol. It is shown that, in the case of a room temperature coagulant, a heterogeneous film with a droplet texture enlarging over thickness appears along the precipitation front. At a high temperature of alcohol the coagulation of the solution occurs in two stages. At the first stage the penetration of the coagulant into the jet of spinning solution leading to the formation of vacuoles occurs. The phase separation of the solution proceeds within the vacuoles as microreactors to form a polymer-concentrated shell and a polymer-diluted phase in the vacuole cavity. At the second stage the coagulant diffuses through the vacuole shell into the bulk of the solution and causes its uniform coagulation. The process of vacuole formation is visualized. The transverse cleavage of the film is analyzed by energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. The difference in the content of C, N, and O atoms on the walls of vacuoles and in the region of a film with a uniform cellular morphology is established.

  • Poly(butylene adipate-co-terephthalate) Polyester Synthesis Process and
           Product Development

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Poly(butylene adipate-co-terephthalate) is a well-known aliphatic-aromatic biodegradable random co-polyester that is structurally composed of a chemical unit of butylene adipate and butylene terephthalate. It can be synthesized by a polycondensation reaction in the melt stage. However, the synthesis process is very much complicated because it requires a high esterification temperature as well as a vacuum to achieve a suitable molecular weight for different grade industrial applications. Additionally, the synthesis process gives the various side reactions that associate depolymerization with hydrolytic degradation, the color of polymer, tetrahydrofuran formation, etc. This short literature review deals with the various methods development of poly(butylene adipate-co-terephthalate) synthesis for commercial scale. Moreover, different grades of its synthesis are also investigated with chain extenders, branching agents, chemical functionalization and in-situ incorporation of nanocomposites.

  • Bioplastics from Biopolymers: An Eco-Friendly and Sustainable Solution of
           Plastic Pollution

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Global production of synthetic polymers such as plastics is nearly 390 million tons/year, which is creating enormous challenges on a number of frontiers including environment, sustainable development and health. The non-degradability of plastics and petrochemical-based polymers is a huge environmental crisis despite being an industry with billions of dollars share in global economy. Water pollution due to synthetic plastics and related products is evident from the fact that 7 million tons of land based plastic debris enters oceans and water bodies annually endangering the sea life which is not only a concern for the aquatic environment but also for the sea food industry and eventually to human health. Eco-friendly and sustainable polymers from a number of living organisms can be used as an alternative to synthetic polymers. Biopolymers such as starch, cellulose, pectin, keratin, chitin, gelatin and polyhydroxyalkanoates can be obtained from natural biomass sources. All these biopolymers exhibit suitable physiochemical, thermal and mechanical properties that make them suitable for the production of bioplastics that are biobased and biodegradable in nature. Use of biopolymers is not limited to bioplastics but ranges from sustainable production of other products such as bio-implants, biofuels, and medicinal products. In this review, we have discussed comprehensively about the sources of biopolymers, their extraction and purification methods and the reasons that make them efficient biopolymers for the environment.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This review summarizes our and published data on the kinetics and mechanism of controlled radical polymerization of methacrylates mediated by nitroxide radicals. The reasons influencing the possibility or impossibility of the realization of radical polymerization of methyl methacrylate in the mode of reversible inhibition are analyzed. The main factors determining the specificity of the nitroxide-mediated polymerization of methacrylates are the interaction of nitroxides with growing radicals by the disproportionation mechanism, the Fischer hypereffect, a high rate of reinitiation, and an abnormally low rate of reversible termination.
