    • Clay nanocomposites based on poly(vinylidene fluoride-co-hexafluoropropylene): Structure and properties 

      Kelarakis, A.; Hayrapetyan, S.; Ansari, S.; Fang, J.; Estevez, L.; Giannelis, E.P. (ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2009-12-02)
      Structure-properties relationships in poly(vinylidene fluoride-co-hexafluoropropylene), PVDF-HFP, clay nanocomposites are reported for the first time. Addition of organically modified clays to PVDF-HFP promotes an α to β ...
    • Crystallization and unusual rheological behavior in poly(ethylene oxide)-clay nanocomposites 

      Kelarakis, A.; Giannelis, E.P. (Elsevier, 2011-05-04)
      We report a systematic study of the crystallization and theological behavior of poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO)-clay nanocomposites. To that end a series of nanocomposites based on PEOs of different molecular weight (10(3) < ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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, ...
    • 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. ...
    • Superhydrophilic and solvent resistant coatings on polypropylene fabrics by a simple deposition process 

      Fang, J.; Kelarakis, A.; Estevez, L.; Wang, Y.; Rodriguez, R.; Giannelis, E.P. (ROYAL SOC CHEMISTRY, 2010-02-01)
      A simple, yet general coating method to plasma treated polymeric substrates is presented. The method is based on electrostatic interactions between the surface functionalized nanoparticles and the charged substrate and ...
