  • Publication number: 20130040197
    Abstract: Composite materials containing sulfurized polymers and sulfur-containing particles can be used in lithium-sulfur energy storage devices as a positive electrode. The composite material exhibits relatively high capacity retention and high charge/discharge cycle stability. In one particular instance, the composite comprises a sulfurized polymer having chains that are cross-linked through sulfur bonds. The polymer provides a matrix in which sulfide and/or polysulfide intermediates formed during electrochemical charge-discharge processes of sulfur can be confined through chemical bonds and not mere physical confinement or sorption.

The adhesive complex coacervates have several desirable features when compared to conventional bioadhesives, which are effective in water-based applications. The adhesive complex coacervates described herein exhibit good interfacial tension in water when applied to a substrate (i.e., they spread over the interface rather than being beaded up). Additionally, the ability of the complex coacervate to crosslink intermolecularly increases the cohesive strength of the adhesive complex coacervate.

  • Publication number: 20100152364
    Abstract: The present invention relates to polymers, rubber compositions, and tires. In some embodiments, the present invention relates to polymers comprising repeat units provided from at least one amine monomer. The amine monomer can be an amine styrene monomer. Examples of amine styrenes monomer are provided. In other embodiments, a polymer can be made from the copolymerization of at least one amine monomer and at least one monomer that is used to make synthetic rubber, such as at least one conjugated diolefin monomer. These polymers can be terminated with a terminating group, including, for example, those having a hydrolyzable group. Rubber compositions can be made from the above-described polymers. Tires can be made from the polymers or from the rubber compositions.
