Core-shell hybrid particles, possessing a hard core of silica particles (SiPs) and a soft shell of brushlike polystyrene (PS), were successfully prepared by the combination of lithium-iodine exchange (LIE) and surface-initiated living anionic polymerization (SI-LAP). The molecular weight, graft density and brush thicknesses of the PS brushes were(More)
A series of polyethyleneimine (PEI) incorporated MIL-101 adsorbents with different PEI loadings were reported for the first time in the present work. Although the surface area and pore volume of MIL-101 decreased significantly after loading PEI, all the resulting composites exhibited dramatically enhanced CO2 adsorption capacity at low pressures. At 100 wt%(More)
The melt viscosity of three-arm star polystyrene (S3PS)-Fe(3)O(4) nanoparticle composites was studied by means of rheological measurements. The arm molecular weight (M(a)) of S3PS (or radius gyration) and the particle size of Fe(3)O(4) (radius (R(p)): 3 nm and 44 nm) showed a strong influence on the melt viscosity behavior (at low shear frequencies) of(More)
We report the facile synthesis of aluminum-based metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) with different morphologies and structures by tuning the OH(-) content in the reaction solution. MIL-96 crystals with dodecahedral and hexagonal column shapes were successfully synthesized by tuning the OH(-) ion content of the synthesis solution. When the OH(-) ion content was(More)
A new strategy to synthesize hierarchical, porous titania/carbon (TiO2/C) hybrid microspheres via solvothermal reaction in N,N'-dimethyl formamide (DMF) has been developed. In situ formed polystyrene (PS) colloids have been used as templating agent and carbon source, through which TiO2/PS microspheres with a diameter of ca. 1 μm are built by packed TiO2(More)
Hydrozirconation on vinyl-terminated substrates (silicon wafer and nanosilica sphere) is employed as an efficient way for immobilization of zirconocene catalyst through Zr-C bonds, which is applied in surface coordination ethylene polymerization producing surface-tethered polyethylene (PE). The formation of Zr-C σ bond induced by hydrozirconation provides(More)
Controlled chain-scission of polybutadiene (PB), polyisoprene, and poly(styrene-co-butadiene), induced by bis(cyclopentadienyl) zirconium hydrochloride (Cp(2)ZrHCl), was revealed at room temperature. The chain-scission reaction of linear PB was studied by means of GPC, NMR spectroscopy, and MALDI-TOF-MS. It was confirmed that the molecular weights of(More)
