Transition metal-assisted polymerization techniques have always played a crucial role in polymer synthesis. As an illustration, metallic compounds have deeply marked the field of living/controlled radical polymerization (L/CRP) which gives access to well-defined polymers under non drastic conditions. Indeed, atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) is one of the most successful methods to polymerize vinyl monomers in a controlled manner. Besides this very successful system, another metal-assisted CRP technique is emerging, i.e. organometallic-mediated radical polymerization (OMRP). In contrast to ATRP, OMRP involves the reversible formation of a covalent bond between a transition metal and the polymer chains, which strongly decreases the extent of termination reactions and leads to polymers with predictable molecular weights. This lecture aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the synthetic and mechanistic aspects of OMRP as well as major achievements and remaining challenges in this field. [less ▲]

The mobility of distant methyl side groups in poly(hexyl methacrylate)-block-poly(sodium acrylate) (PHMA−PAANa) and poly(dodecyl methacrylate))-block-poly(sodium acrylate) (PLMA−PAANa) micelles, dispersed in D2O and characterized by SANS, was studied using 1H single and double quantum high-resolution and MAS NMR. Transverse and rotating-frame relaxation was studied at temperatures 320−345 K in the original micellar solutions and in the systems with their viscosity gradually increased by additions of high-molecular-weight poly(ethylene oxide) and with the micellar cores gradually swollen by chlorobenzene. The relaxation data were quantitatively evaluated using a pragmatic model based on Cohen-Addad's theory. The results obtained strongly indicate that the side groups are relatively immobilized to an even higher degree than in poly(2-ethylhexyl acrylate)-block-poly(acrylic acid) micelles at the same conditions. The most immobilized groups are at or near the interface. Possible underlying effects, including penetration resistance of the surrounding water molecules, fixation of the polymer backbone at the interface, and motional correlation between the distant side group and the backbone are discussed.

Morphological and rheological properties of new ternary nanocomposites based on ethylene vinyl acetate copolymers (EVA), commercial organo-modified clays (organoclays) and purified multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs), prepared via direct melt blending, have been evaluated. For sake of comparison, the corresponding binary compositions, i.e., EVA filled with either organoclays or MWNTs, have been investigated as well. While extensive exfoliation can be observed for binary EVA/clay nanocomposites, the addition of MWNTs appears to limit clay exfoliation. Rheological properties show that both clay and MWNTs increase the elastic modulus of the nanocomposites, reflecting the high degree of nanoparticle interconnectivity that can be found in these materials.

New micellar macrocontrast agents with improved contrast at high frequencies were designed by grafting a gadolinium based contrast agent onto functional stealth micelles formed by poly(ethylene oxide)-b-poly(ε-caprolactone) (PEO-b-PCL) in water. As evidenced by relaxometry measurements and the hemolytic CH50 test, the new contrast agents are of interest as MRI blood pool agents. [less ▲]

A review with 115 refs. This review aims at reporting on very recent developments in syntheses, properties and (future) applications of polymer-layered silicate nanocomposites. This new type of materials, based on smectite clays usually rendered hydrophobic through ionic exchange of the sodium interlayer cation with an onium cation, may be prepd. via various synthetic routes comprising exfoliation adsorption, in situ intercalative polymn. and melt intercalation. The whole range of polymer matrixes is covered, i.e., thermoplastics, thermosets and elastomers. Two types of structure may be obtained, namely intercalated nanocomposites where the polymer chains are sandwiched in between silicate layers and exfoliated nanocomposites where the sepd., individual silicate layers are more or less uniformly dispersed in the polymer matrix. This new family of materials exhibits enhanced properties at very low filler level, usually inferior to 5 wt.%, such as increased Young's modulus and storage modulus, increase in thermal stability and gas barrier properties and good flame retardancy.

The extensive development of electronic systems and telecommunications has lead to major concerns regarding electromagnetic pollution. Motivated by environmental questions and by a wide variety of applications, the quest for materials with high efficiency to mitigate electromagnetic interferences (EMI) pollution has become a mainstream field of research. This paper reviews the state-of-the-art research in the design and characterization of polymer/carbon based composites as EMI shielding materials. After a brief introduction, in Section 1, the electromagnetic theory will be briefly discussed in Section 2 setting the foundations of the strategies to be employed to design efficient EMI shielding materials. These materials will be classified in the next section by the type of carbon fillers, involving carbon black, carbon fiber, carbon nanotubes and graphene. The importance of the dispersion method into the polymer matrix (melt-blending, solution processing, etc.) on the final material properties will be discussed. The combination of carbon fillers with other constituents such as metallic nanoparticles or conductive polymers will be the topic of Section 4. The final section will address advanced complex architectures that are currently studied to improve the performances of EMI materials and, in some cases, to impart additional properties such as thermal management and mechanical resistance. In all these studies, we will discuss the efficiency of the composites/devices to absorb and/or reflect the EMI radiation. [less ▲]
