  • Patent number: 9158197
    Abstract: A method of preparing an organic-inorganic hybrid material is described. A M(OR)x and an organically modified Si-alkoxide having a predetermined functional group are dissolved in a first solvent and a second solvent to form a first solution and a second solution, respectively. The first solution and the second solution are then mixed and heated. As a result, the M(OR)x reacts with the organically modified Si-alkoxide to form a functionalized organic-inorganic hybrid material. Furthermore, the solid content of the functionalized organic-inorganic hybrid material is increased by transferring the same into another solvent. Therefore, a thick hybrid film is fabricated by means of the transferred functionalized organic-inorganic hybrid material.

  • Patent number: 8142687
    Abstract: A method for selecting materials and processing conditions to prepare a heterogeneous structure in situ via the reaction of a homogeneous mixture of a reactive organic compound and a filler, which may then optionally be sintered. The method is employed to provide a heterogeneous composite possessing exceptionally high thermal and/or electrically conductivities for a given concentration of conductive filler. The choice of materials as well as processing conditions employed, as will be described below, have a strong effect on the rate domain formation/heterogeneity of the structure formed, the extent of filler particle-particle interactions within filler-rich domains, and ultimately the thermal and/or electrical conductivity. Proper choice of these conditions can lead to composites having enhanced properties at a reduced bulk filler concentration.

  • Publication number: 20100324211
    Abstract: The object of the invention is a method for the dispersion of reactive monomers, wherein a monomer emulsion (8) is fed at a first pressure through a dispersion jet (7) and a second dispersion (9) is fed laterally behind the dispersion jet at a second pressure that is less than the first pressure, both the emulsion and the dispersion being dispersed with one another in a mixing chamber. Using the method, nanoparticle-laden monomer emulsions may be produced that, after polymerization, produce polymer-coated nanoparticles.

  • Patent number: 7807219
    Abstract: A process of repairing a plasma etched low-k dielectric material having surface-bound silanol groups includes exposing at least one surface of the dielectric material to (a) a catalyst so as to form hydrogen bonds between the catalyst and the surface-bound silanol groups obtaining a catalytic intermediary that reacts with the silane capping agent so as to form surface-bound silane compounds, or (b) a solution comprising a supercritical solvent, a catalyst, and a silane capping agent so as to form hydrogen bonds between a catalyst and the surface-bound silanol groups obtaining a catalytic intermediary that reacts with the silane capping agent so as to form surface-bound silane compounds. Horizontal networks can be formed between adjacent surface-bound silane compounds.
