On the Diffusion Mechanism in Melts of Condensation and Non-Condensation Polymers at High Temperatures

As recently assumed (DOI:10.3144/expresspoly mlett.2019.25), the diffusion mechanism in melts of noncondensation and condensation polymers at high temperatures must be rather different due to the

Recent Advances of Hierarchical and Sequential Growth of Macromolecular Organic Structures on Surface

In this review, the different reaction combinations used for the design of 1D and 2D structures are reported and a new approach consisting in elaborating macromolecular structures by combining consecutive steps has been identified as a promising strategy to elaborate organic structures on surface.

A paradigm for the efficient synthesis of bio-based polycarbonate with deep eutectic solvents as catalysts by inhibiting the degradation of molecular chains

In this study, an efficient catalytic system composed of deep eutectic solvents (DESs) was developed by adjusting the basicity of hydrogen bond donors (HBDs) to synthesize poly(isosorbide) carbonate

Bio-Based Aromatic Copolyesters: Influence of Chemical Microstructures on Thermal and Crystalline Properties

Thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA) and wide-angle X-ray diffraction experiments revealed the semicrystalline nature for this kind of copolyesters, and crystallinities gradually decreased with the increase of eugenol-derived composition.

Chemical healing in partially cross‐linked polyamides

Evidence is presented for chemical healing—healing resulting from chemical reactions between neighboring macromolecules located at the interface surface—which has recently been reported in linear

Self-healing polymeric materials.

This review outlines the recent advances in the field of self-healing polymers, and the primary classes are the covalent bonding, supramolecular assemblies, ionic interactions, chemo-mechanical self- healing, and shape memory polymers.

Self-healing polymers and composites for extreme environments

Self-healing polymers and composites utilizing the Diels–Alder reaction have received considerable attention due to the intrinsic healing capability of this crosslink. However past research focused

Self healing in polymers and polymer composites. Concepts, realization and outlook: A review

Formation of microcracks is a critical problem in polymers and polymer composites during their service in struc- tural applications. Development and coalescence of microcracks would bring about
