Stimuli-Responsive Elastic Polyurethane-Based Superabsorber Nanomat Composites
(517523)
Macromolecular Materials and Engineering 296 #6 (2011)

Chen, Greiner and Agarwal of Philipps-University Marburg, Germany, used photoresponsive superabsorber particles containing a crosslinked hydrophilic core and a hydrophobic azobenzene-containing shell to prepare photoresponsive polymeric nanomats, thus combining photoresponsivity with high porosity, toughness, and hydrophilicity.  The properties of the nanomat composites were highly dependent upon the amount of the superabsorber photochromic particles added. Stable, highly elastic composite nanomats with very high loading (up to ≈50wt.-%), good water absorption capacity (4000%) and relatively good tensile strength (3MPa) were obtained.  (RDC 6/21/2011).

Sorption and Swelling Measurements of CO2 and N2 on Polyol for Their Use As Blowing Agents in a New PU Foaming Process Device
(76317636)
 Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research 50 #12 (2011)

Fieback et al, Germany and Spain, developed a new foaming process device has been developed to overcome the drawbacks of flammable blowing agents by performing physical foaming with safe blowing gases. Results for N2 sorption on polyol showed that no appreciable sorption occurred for this gas. However, CO2 sorption was observed to be significant, and thus, the swelling of the polyol sample was measured to correct the CO2 sorption values. Corrected sorption results for CO2 on the polyol yielded a maximum uptake of 617 mg/g at 293 K and 5.4 MPa with an increase in the sample volume of about 47%. Measuring data showed that CO2 sorption increased with pressure and decreased with temperature.  (RDC 6/14/2011)
