Preparation of Nanoscale Urushiol/PAN Films to Evaluate Their Acid Resistance and Protection of Functional PVP Films

The urushiol/PAN film was used to fabricate the sandwich nanoscale films and the working environment tolerability of the functional PVP film was increased, which indicated the improved acid resistance of the PAN film.

Molecular Engineering Super-Robust Dry/Wet Adhesive with Strong Interface Bonding and Excellent Mechanical Tolerance.

Despite the fact that synthetic adhesives have achieved great progress, achieving robust dry/wet adhesion under harsh operating environments is still challenging. Herein, inspired from the

Synthesis of linear poly-cardanol and its application in rubber materials

. People have been trying to find natural products that can replace rubber due to the land occupied by rubber planting and the environmental pollution caused by waste rubber. Herein, the linear

Synthesis of a Compound Phosphorus-Nitrogen Intumescent Flame Retardant for Applications to Raw Lacquer

The TGA indicates that RL/IFR membranes demonstrate a greater adhesion level, a higher rigidity, and better luster than pure RL membranes.

Robust Antiwater and Anti-oil-fouling Double-Sided Tape Enabled by SiO2 Reinforcement and a Liquefied Surface.

This work develops a supertough polyacrylate-based tape bearing SiO2 as a reinforcing filler and a solvent to liquefy the surface, which imparts the double-sided tape with admirable antiwater and anti-oil-fouling adhesion performance, which far exceeds that of commercial tapes, as well as high transparency and long-term stability.

Synthesis of 4-substituted catechols with side-chains of different C[double bond, length as m-dash]C bond number as urushiol analogues and their anticorrosion performance.

4-Substituted catechols with different C[double bond, length as m-dash]C bonds as urushiol analogues were synthesized through the a three-step route including reductive amination reaction of

Wood Composites and Their Polymer Binders

This review presents first, rather succinctly, what are the important points to look out for when preparing good wood composites, the main types of wood composites manufactured industrially, and the



High Strength Underwater Bonding with Polymer Mimics of Mussel Adhesive Proteins.

Underwater bonding was examined as a function of parameters including polymer molecular weight and composition and several surprising results emerged, including poly(catechol-styrene), which may be the strongest underwater adhesive found to date.

Mussel‐Inspired Polyesters with Aliphatic Pendant Groups Demonstrate the Importance of Hydrophobicity in Underwater Adhesion

Recognizing the potential for synthetic adhesives that can function in wet environments, elements of mussel foot proteins such as L‐3,4‐dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA) and phosphoserine have been

On the UV-induced polymeric behavior of Chinese lacquer.

UV curing technology to improve Chinese lacquer curing rate using a high-pressure mercury lamp as a UV source in the absence of any additional photoinitiator showed that urushiol was the main component to form Chinese Lacquer films, and decomposed to generate the urushiola semiquinone radicals, which sequentially induced the polymerization of China lacquer by radical polymerization as well as radical substitution under UV irradiation.

Fe3+-induced oxidation and coordination cross-linking in catechol–chitosan hydrogels under acidic pH conditions

Mussel byssus is rich in Fe3+ and catechol-containing proteins; chemical interactions between these components vary widely with respect to changes in pH during byssal maturation. Previous studies

Mussel-Inspired Materials: Self-Healing through Coordination Chemistry.

How mussel-inspired materials have been made with a focus on the less developed use of metal coordination are reviewed and how this chemistry can be widely to make self-healing materials is illustrated.
