    Investigation of mechanical properties, antibacterial features, and water vapor permeability of polyvinyl alcohol thin films reinforced by glutaraldehyde and multiwalled carbon nanotube

    , Article Polymer Composites ; Vol. 35,Issue. 9 , 2014 , pp. 1736-1743 ; ISSN: 1548-0569 Mohammad Mahdi Dadfar, S ; Kavoosi, G ; Mohammad Ali Dadfar, S ; Sharif University of Technology
    Abstract
    Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) thin films were reinforced by glutaraldehyde and multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and then mechanical, water solubility, water swelling, water uptake, water vapor permeability, and antibacterial properties of the films were examined. Cross-linking by glutaraldehyde or incorporation of MWCNT caused a significant increase in tensile strength, decrease in elongation at break, and increase in Young's modulus of the PVA films, while MWCNTs were more effective rather than that of glutaraldehyde. Cross-linking by glutaraldehyde or incorporation of MWCNT caused a significant decrease in water solubility, water swelling and water uptake, with a similar manner....

    Abstract
    In this article, a continuum-based constitutive model is developed to predict the mechanical behavior of 5052 resin epoxy reinforced by multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) based on experimentally generated data. For this purpose, MWCNTs/epoxy specimens with various percentages of functionalized and nonfunctionalized MWCNTs are prepared. The SEM graphs indicate that functionalization leads to a better bound between epoxy and MWCNTs and a higher level of dispersion. The specimens are then tested under standard ASTM D638-02 a procedure and their true plastic stress–strain curves are extracted. Investigations on experimentally generated data reveal that a wt% dependent equation which is... 

    Effect of long-chain ionic liquids on the capacitive performance of carbon nanotube-sulfonated polyaniline hydrogels for energy storage applications

    Abstract
    Imidazolium-based ionic liquids (ILs) have been perceived as a promising candidate for bridging polyaniline (PANI) on well-dispersed carbon nanotubes (CNTs) via formation of IL-stabilized multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) dispersion in which outer walls of CNTs, as well as benzene rings of the aniline monomer and the growing polymer, have been potently effective in such procurement. The sulfonated water-soluble PANI-[C16C1im]Cl-MWCNT nanocomposites (SPANI-IL-MWCNTs) are directly deposited on a graphite-based current collector using a simple and cost-effective electrophoretic deposition (EPD) method. The SPANI-IL-MWCNT electrodes exhibit remarkable electrochemical performance compared to... 

    Electrochemical determination of clozapine on MWCNTs/new coccine doped ppy modified GCE: An experimental design approach

    Abstract
    The electrooxidation of clozapine (CLZ) was studied on the surface of a glassy carbon electrode (GCE) modified with a thin film of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs)/new coccine (NC) doped polypyrrole (PPY) by using linear sweep voltammetry (LSV). The pH of the supporting electrolyte (D), drop size of the cast MWCNTs suspension (E) and accumulation time of CLZ on the surface of modified electrode (F) was considered as effective experimental factors and the oxidation peak current of CLZ was selected as the response. By using factorial-based response-surface methodology, the optimum values of factors were obtained as 5.44, 10 μL and 300 s for D, E and F respectively. Under the optimized...
