Thermodynamics of water sorption in poly(ɛ-caprolactone): A comparative analysis of lattice fluid models including hydrogen bond contributions
Abstract Thermodynamics of water sorption in poly(ɛ-caprolactone) (PCL) has been interpreted by using three models based on compressible lattice fluid theories, addressing the issue of self- andExpand
Molecular Interactions in and Transport Properties of Densely Cross-Linked Networks: A Time-Resolved FT-IR Spectroscopy Investigation of the Epoxy/H2O System
Transport of water in an epoxy network with high cross-link density was investigated at several water vapor activities by time-resolved FT-IR spectroscopy and gravimetric measurements. The analysisExpand
Assembly of plate-like nanoparticles in immiscible polymer blends--effect of the presence of a preferred liquid-liquid interface.
The assembly of lamellar (clay) nanoparticles in a blend of polystyrene (PS) and poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) with drop-matrix morphology with percolation and fractal models is studied to elucidate whether the particles govern the blend morphology or the structural evolutions of the fluids dictate the space arrangement of the filler.

Nanofilled polyethersulfone as matrix for continuous glass fibers composites: Mechanical properties and solvent resistance†
Polyethersulfone (PES) is high performance thermoplastic polymer; however, its applications are limited by the poor resistance to several classes of solvents. Fumed silica and expanded graphiteExpand
Evolutionary screening and adsorption behavior of engineered M13 bacteriophage and derived dodecapeptide for selective decoration of gold interfaces.
This work proved a general route to select a biomolecule adhesive motif for surface functionalization by comprehensively screening phage displayed peptides and demonstrated the adhesive motif was capable to adsorb on gold in a preferential way with a morphological and viscoelastic signature of the adsorbed layer.

Molecular Sensing by Nanoporous Crystalline Polymers
The main advantages of crystalline nanoporous polymeric materials with respect to their amorphous counterparts are the ability to maintain their physical state as well as geometry, even after large guest uptake, and the possibility to control guest diffusivity by controlling the orientation of the host polymeric crystalline phase.

A closed form for fluorescence correlation spectroscopy experiments in submicrometer structures.
A close form solution is proposed to explicitly account for the presence of walls located at a distance comparable with the characteristic detection volume lengths and derive a one-dimensional diffusion constrained model and generalize the solution to the two- and the three-dimensional constrained cases.

Fluorescence correlation spectroscopy in semiadhesive wall proximity.
An original modeling of the autocorrelation function where fluorophores experience reflection or adsorption at a wall placed at distances comparable with the detection volume size is reported and can be readily adopted to gain a better understanding of intracellular and nanoconfined diffusion.

Gas sorption and transport in syndiotactic polystyrene with nanoporous crystalline phase
Abstract In this contribution we analyse sorption and transport of several gases in semicrystalline syndiotactic polystyrene with nanoporous crystalline δ form. Investigation was performed onExpand
Non-equilibrium compressible lattice theories accounting for hydrogen bonding interactions: Modelling water sorption thermodynamics in fluorinated polyimides
Abstract In this contribution the sorption thermodynamics of water in glassy fluorinated polyimides has been interpreted by using two non-equilibrium lattice models, accounting for hydrogen bondExpand
