Data on Applied Polymer Science Reported by Researchers at University of Mazandaran

June 3, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- Data detailed on Applied Polymer Science have been presented. According to news reporting out of Babol Sar, Iran, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "A series of poly(carbazole-quinoxaline-amide)s (PCQAs) containing phenyl and long alkyl chain as pendants was synthesized from polycondensation between a new diamine with a synthesized and several commercial dicarboxylic acids using Yamazaki's method. PCQAs had inherent viscosities and weight average molecular weights ( M w) in the range of 0.48-0.62 dL g(-1) and 51,600-58,500 g mol(-1), respectively."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the University of Mazandaran, "These luminescent polymers are readily soluble in a variety of organic solvents and formed low-colored and tough thin films. In this study, silane modified SiO2 (mSiO(2)) nanoparticles were prepared, characterized and used with PCQAs in preparation of nanocomposites via solution blending method. The interfacial interaction strength between mSiO(2) and the polymer-matrix enhanced thermal stability (T-10%, from 463 degrees C to 500 degrees C) and mechanical strength (from 100 MPa to 150 MPa) for composite containing 30 wt % mSiO(2) in comparison with the pure polyamide."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "These materials showed good ability for extraction-elimination of metal ions such as Cr6+, Cr3+, Co2+, Zn2+, Pb2+, Cd2+, and Hg2+ from aqueous solutions either individually or in the mixture at various pH."
