Mixed Ionic-Electronic Conducting Membranes (MIEC) for Their Application in Membrane Reactors: A Review
Mixed ionic-electronic conducting membranes have seen significant progress over the last 25 years as efficient ways to obtain oxygen separation from air and for their integration in chemical production systems where pure ...
The Effect of Titanium Dioxide Surface Modification on the Dispersion, Morphology, and Mechanical Properties of Recycled PP/PET/TiO2 PBNANOs
Titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles have recently appeared in PET waste because of the introduction of opaque PET bottles. We prepare polymer blend nanocomposites (PBNANOs) by adding hydrophilic (hphi), hydrophobic (hpho), ...
Tailoring the isothermal crystallization kinetics of isodimorphic poly (butylene succinate-ran-butylene azelate) random copolymers by changing composition
A detailed isothermal crystallization study of biobased and biodegradable isodimorphic poly (butylene succinate-ran-butylene azelate) random copolyesters (PBS-ran-PBAz) with a wide composition range has been carried out ...
Occupational exposure to nano-TiO2 in the life cycle steps of new depollutant mortars used in construction
(IOP Publishing, 2015)
The present work is focused on the measurement of workers exposure to nano-TiO2 in the life cycle steps of depollutant mortars. It has been done in the framework of the SCAFFOLD project, which aims at the management of ...
Analysis of multivariate stochastic signals sampled by on-line particle analyzers: Application to the quantitative assessment of occupational exposure to NOAA in multisource industrial scenarios (MSIS)
(IOP Publishing, 2015)
In multisource industrial scenarios (MSIS) coexist NOAA generating activities with other productive sources of airborne particles, such as parallel processes of manufacturing or electrical and diesel machinery. A distinctive ...
Functional Assessment of Particleboards Made of Apple and Plum Orchard Pruning
Three-layered composite materials consisting in wood-chips bonded by a resin (particleboard) were successfully produced from two by-products: plum and apple tree branches, waste biomass produced after orchard pruning; a ...
Crystallization and Morphology of Triple Crystalline Polyethylene-b-poly(ethylene oxide)-b-poly(ε-caprolactone) PE-b-PEO-b-PCL Triblock Terpolymers
The morphology and crystallization behavior of two triblock terpolymers of polymethylene, equivalent to polyethylene (PE), poly (ethylene oxide) (PEO), and poly (ε-caprolactone) (PCL) are studied: PE227.1-b-PEO4615.1-b-PCL3210.4 ...
Editorial Special Issue: "Advance Polymeric Materials: Synthesis, Properties and Applications"
As a consequence of their properties of lightness, strength, versatility, low toxicity, low cost and durability, the 20th century saw the beginning of the use of polymers as disruptive materials [...]
Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS) modeling supporting decision-making: A systematic quantitative review
Decision Support Systems (DSS) for Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) are a valuable aid for SUDS widespread adoption. These tools systematize the decision-making criteria and eliminate the bias inherent to expert ...
Contributions of Women in Recent Research on Biopolymer Science
Nowadays, biopolymers are playing a fundamental role in our society because of the environmental issues and concerns associated with synthetic polymers. The aim of this Special Issue entitled ‘Women in Polymer Science and ...
