Superhydrophobic surfaces are generated by chemisorption on aluminum substrates of fluorinated block copolymers synthesized by reversible addition−fragmentation chain transfer in supercritical carbon dioxide. In an appropriate solvent, those block copolymers can form micelles with a fluorinated corona, which are grafted on the aluminum substrate thanks to the presence of carboxylic acid groups in the corona. Water contact angle and drop impact analysis were used to characterize the wettability of the films at the macroscale, and atomic force microscopy measurements provided morphological information at the micro- and nanoscale. The simple solvent casting of the polymer solution on a hydroxylated aluminum surface results in a coating with multiscale roughness, which is fully superhydrophobic over areas up to 4 cm2. [less ▲]

Cobalt-mediated radical coupling (CMRC) is a straightforward approach to the synthesis of symmetrical macromolecules that relies on the addition of 1,3-diene compounds onto polymer precursors preformed by cobalt-mediated radical polymerization (CMRP). Mechanistic features that make this process so efficient for radical polymer coupling are reported here. The mechanism was established on the basis of NMR spectroscopy and MALDI-MS analyses of the coupling product and corroborated by DFT calculations. A key feature of CMRC is the preferential insertion of two diene units in the middle of the chain of the coupling product mainly according to a trans-1,4-addition pathway. The large tolerance of CMRC towards the diene structure is demonstrated and the impact of this new coupling method on macromolecular engineering is discussed, especially for midchain functionalization of polymers. It is worth noting that the interest in CMRC goes beyond the field of polymer chemistry, since it constitutes a novel carbon-carbon bond formation method that could be applied to small organic molecules.

Recent developments in cobalt-mediated radical polymerization (CMRP) and progress in the mechanistic understanding enabled to optimize the copolymerization of n-butyl acrylate (nBA) with vinyl acetate (VAc), as well as to control the homopolymerization of nBA by means of bis(acetylacetonato)cobalt-(II) (Co(acac)2). Critical experimental parameters such as the initiating system, the temperature, and the presence of additives were varied and discussed. Under optimized conditions, an alkylcobalt(III) adduct R0-(CH2-CHOAc)<4-Co(acac)2 (R0=primary radical from the V-70 decomposition) allowed a better control of the nBA/VAc copolymerization than the previously studied V-70/Co(acac)2 pair regarding the molecular weight control and the polydispersities. Importantly, the homopolymerization of nBA was controlled by Co(acac)2 for the first time using the alkylcobalt(III) adduct or the lauroyl peroxide (LPO)/ Co(acac)2 redox pair as initiating system. Typically, poly(n-butyl acrylate) with polydispersity around 1.2 and molar mass as high as 200 000 g/mol was achieved with this cobalt complex. [less ▲]

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been dispersed within polypropylene with the purpose to prepare electromagnetic interference (EMI) absorbers. In order to limit the reflectivity of the electromagnetic waves at the interface of the materials while achieving good absorbing properties, the CNTs concentration must be kept low (<3 wt%) which means that a perfect dispersion must be ensured. Since CNTs do not disperse well within apolar polymer matrices such as polypropylene, two compatibilizers bearing aromatic moieties, i.e. pyrene and pyridine, able to develop π-π interactions with the CNTs have been synthesized starting from polypropylene grafted by maleic anhydride (PP-g-MA). A masterbatch is first prepared by dispersion of CNTs within the compatibilizers by melt-mixing and coprecipitation followed by further dispersion within the PP matrix. Rheological and electromagnetic characterizations of the nanocomposites have demonstrated the efficiency of these compatibilizers to promote the dispersion of CNTs in PP and the good EMI shielding effectiveness of the PP matrix at a low CNTs concentration (2 wt%).

This work deals with the preparation and characterization of fire-resistant poly(styrene coacrylonitrile) (SAN) foams containing (organo)clays and/or melamine polyphosphate (MPP) as fire retardants using supercritical CO2 as the foaming agent. The additives dispersion was first characterized with X-ray and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) analyses. Their presence clearly affected the cellular morphology, as observed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Then, the peak of heat release rate (PHRR) and total heat evolved (THE) were determined with a cone calorimetry test, performed on each foamed sample as a function of the foam density. Incorporation of clay (3 and 5 wt%) in the exfoliated state into the SAN foam clearly led to a significant decrease of PHRR, while intercalated and aggregated clay had a lower effect. Similar results were obtained with 10 and 20 wt% of MPP. The best results were obtained when exfoliated clay and MPP were combined, with a PHRR drop as large as 75%, thanks to the synergistic action of both additives. The magnitude of PHRR drop, related to the fire resistance, was found to be in direct relationship with the cohesiveness of the protective carbonaceous layer formed at the sample surface during combustion. Clay and MPP, when added together, are thus believed to favour the formation of a highly cohesive protective layer able to act as an efficient shield against the flame, despite the fact that the sample is originally composed of ~90% of voids.

Here we report on an all-in-one approach to prepare robust antimicrobial films on stainless steel. The strategy is based on the layer-by-layer deposition of polyelectrolytes. A polycationic copolymer bearing 3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine units (DOPA, a major component of natural adhesives) was synthesized and co-deposited with precursors of silver nanoparticles as the first layer. The presence of DOPA units ensures a strong anchoring on the stainless steel substrate, and the silver nanoparticles are sources of biocidal Ag+, providing stainless steel with antimicrobial activity. We show that multilayered films, obtained by alternating this nanoparticle-loaded polycationic copolymer with polystyrene sulfonate, a commercial polyanion, results in stainless steel with high antibacterial activity against Gram-negative E. coli bacteria. The polycationic layers are a reservoir of Ag+ that can be reactivated after depletion. The whole process of film formation, including the synthesis of the copolymer, is conducted in aqueous media under very mild conditions, which makes it very attractive for industrial scale-up and sustainable applications.
