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.
Rapid curing and self-stratifying lacquer coating with antifouling and anticorrosive properties
We report on the structure and dynamics of a Cu2+-complexed arachidic acid (AA) monolayer formed by Langmuir–Blodgett (LB) deposition. Infrared reflection–absorption spectroscopy (IRRAS) was used to
Urushiol-resourced dopamine analogue as a trigger to construct clay-hexacyanoferrate hydrogel for cesium removal
Abstract To guarantee the sustainable development of the nuclear industry, it is vital to have a low-cost, green, and scalable route developed to synthesize efficient adsorbents for rapid and
Synthesis of 4-substituted catechols with side-chains of different CC bond number as urushiol analogues and their anticorrosion performance
4-Substituted catechols with different CC bonds as urushiol analogues were synthesized through the a three-step route including reductive amination reaction of 3,4-dihydroxybenzaldehyde with
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.
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.
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
Effects of hybridization of lacquer sap with organic silane on drying properties
A hybrid lacquer that dries quickly in low relative humidity was synthesized from liquid kurome lacquer and N-(2-aminoethyl)-3-aminopropyltrimethoxysilane (AATMS). Hybridization improved the film
pH-Based Regulation of Hydrogel Mechanical Properties Through Mussel-Inspired Chemistry and Processing.
These findings offer the first direct evidence of Fe3+-induced covalent cross-linking of catechol polymers, reveal additional insight into the pH dependence and mechanical role of Fe2+-catechol interactions in mussel byssi, and illustrate the wide range of physical properties accessible in synthetic materials through mimicry of mussel protein chemistry and processing.
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.
