Novel nanostructured thermosetting materials have been prepared by modification of an epoxy resin with a semifluorinated diblock copolymer, poly(heptadecafluorodecyl acrylate)-b-poly(caprolactone), PaF-b-PCL. In a first step, the phase behavior and linear viscoelasticity of PaF-b-PCL were investigated. According to the segregation regime, no order-order transitions were detected, being the order-disorder transition temperature beyond the degradation temperature. Atomic force microscopy (AFM) images of the block copolymer after different thermal treatments revealed that self-assembly takes place into spherical nanodomains, which is consistent with the copolymer composition. This block copolymer was further used to prepare a nanostructured thermoset blend with an epoxy resin. DSC and DMA analysis reveals microphase separation of PaF block from the epoxy-rich phase after curing. The PaF block self-assembled into wormlike and spherical micelles in the thermoset system. This nanostructured blend presented unique surface properties showing high hydrophobicity (upsilon = 109 degrees) and low surface energy (17 mN/m). [less ▲]

1H,1H,2H,2H-Heptadecafluorodecyl acrylate (AC8) was polymerized by reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer and copolymerized with 2-hydroxyethyl acrylate with the formation of random and block copolymers, respectively. The kinetics of the (co)polymerization was monitored with H-1 NMR spectroscopy and showed that the homopolymerization and random copolymerization of AC8 were under control. As a result of this control and the use of S-1-dodecyl-S-(alpha,alpha'-dimethyl-alpha"-acetic acid)trithiocarbonate as a chain-transfer agent, the copolymer chains were end-capped by an a-carboxylic acid group. Moreover, the controlled polymerization of AC8 was confirmed by the successful synthesis of poly(1H,1H,2H,2H-heptadecafluorodecyl acrylate)-b-poly(2hydroxyethyl acrylate) diblock copolymers, which were typically amphiphilic compounds.

Silica nanoparticles of various sizes have been incorporated by melt compounding in a poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) matrix to enhance its thermal and mechanical properties. In order to improve nanoparticles dispersion, PMMA grafted particles have been prepared by atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) from well-defined silica nanoparticles. This strategy was expected to ensure compatibility between both components of the PMMA nanocomposites. TEM analysis have been performed to evaluate the nanosilica dispersion whereas modified and non-modified silica/PMMA nanocomposites thermal stability and mechanical properties have been investigated by both thermogravimetric and dynamical mechanical analysis.
