    • Fouling Release Nanostructured Coatings based on PDMS-polyurea Segmented Copolymers 

      Fang, J.; Kelarakis, A.; Wang, D.; Giannelis, E.P. (ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2010-05-28)
      The bulk and surface characteristics of a series of coatings based on PDMS-polyurea segmented copolymers were correlated to their fouling release performance. Incorporation of polyurea segments to PDMS backbone gives rise ...
    • Fullerol ionic fluids 

      Fernandes, N.; Dallas, P.; Rodriguez, R.; Bourlinos, A.B.; Georgakilas, V.; Giannelis, E.P. (ROYAL SOC CHEMISTRY, 2010-05-07)
      We report for the first time an ionic fluid based on hydroxylated fullerenes (fullerols). The ionic fluid was synthesized by neutralizing the fully protonated fullerol with an amine terminated polyethylene/polypropylene ...
    • High Efficiency Nanocomposite Sorbents for CO₂ Capture based on Amine-functionalized Mesoporous Capsules 

      Qi, G.; Estevez, L.; Anako, N.; Park, A-H.; Li, W.; Jones, C.; Giannelis, E.P. (ROYAL SOC CHEMISTRY, THOMAS GRAHAM HOUSE, SCIENCE PARK, MILTON RD, CAMBRIDGE CB4 0WF, CAMBS, ENGLAND, 2010-10-18)
      A novel high efficiency nanocomposite sorbent for CO2 capture has been developed based on oligomeric amine (polyethylenimine, PEI, and tetraethylenepentamine, TEPA) functionalized mesoporous silica capsules. The newly ...
    • Mesoporous amine-bridged polysilsesquioxane for CO2 capture 

      Qi, G.; Fu, L.; Duan, X.; Choi, B-H.; Abraham, M.; Giannelis, E.P. (Society of Chemical Industry and John Wiley & Sons, Ltd, 2011-08-04)
      A novel class of amine-supported sorbents based on amine-bridged mesoporous polysilsesquioxane was developed via a simple one-pot sol-gel process. The new sorbent allows the incorporation of a large amount of active groups ...
    • Miscibility-Dispersion, Interfacial Strength and Nanoclay Mobility Relationships in Polymer Nanocomposites 

      Carretero-González, J.; Retsos, H.; Giannelis, E.P.; Ezquerra, T.A.; Hernández, M.; López-Manchado, M.A. (ROYAL SOC CHEMISTRY, 2009-07-08)
      Fully dispersed layered silicate nanoparticles (nanoclay) in a polymer matrix have provided a new class of multi-functional materials exhibiting several performance improvements over conventional composites. Yet the ...
    • Nafion-clay hybrids with a network structure 

      Burgaz, E.; Lian, H.; Alonso, H.; Estevez, L.; Kelarakis, A.; Giannelis, E.P. (ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2009-05-22)
      Nafion-clay hybrid membranes with a unique microstructure were synthesized using a fundamentally new approach. The new approach is based on depletion aggregation of suspended particles - a wellknown phenomenon in colloids. ...
    • Nafion-clay nanocomposite membranes: Morphology and properties 

      Alonso, R.H.; Estevez, L.; Lian, H.Q.; Kelarakis, A.; Giannelis, E.P. (ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2009-05-22)
      A series of Nafion-clay nanocomposite membranes were synthesized and characterized. To minimize any adverse effects on ionic conductivity the clay nanoparticles were HI exchanged prior to mixing with Nafion. Well-dispersed, ...
