    Abstract: A polymer composite composed of a polymerized mixture of functionalized carbon nanotubes and monomer which chemically reacts with the functionalized nanotubes. The carbon nanotubes are functionalized by reacting with oxidizing or other chemical media through chemical reactions or physical adsorption. The reacted surface carbons of the nanotubes are further functionalized with chemical moieties that react with the surface carbons and selected monomers. The functionalized nanotubes are first dispersed in an appropriate medium such as water, alcohol or a liquefied monomer and then the mixture is polymerized. The polymerization results in polymer chains of increasing weight bound to the surface carbons of the nanotubes. The composite may consists of some polymer chains imbedded in the composite without attachment to the nanotubes.

  • Patent number: 8729218
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a manufacturing method of polyaspartic acid. More particularly, the present invention relates to a manufacturing method of polyaspartic acid comprising steps of carrying out condensation polymerization of maleic anhydride and ammonia in the presence of a polar solvent without active hydrogen to give polysuccinimide and hydrolyzing the resulting polysuccinimide to obtain polyaspartic acid. Specifically, the present invention is characterized in that the quality of the synthetic product, polysuccinimide and polyaspartic acid, is improved by minimizing the decomposition and the degradation of the maleic acid during the process of the polymerization resulted from the introduction of substituent to maleic acid.

  • Patent number: 8642722
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method of preparing porous polybenzimidazole. The method includes providing polyaminoimide by reacting aromatic amine including at least two ortho-positioned amino groups and acid dianhydride, obtaining polypyrrolone from the polyaminoimide, subjecting the polypyrrolone to alkaline treatment, and subjecting the alkaline-treated polypyrrolone to heat treatment. The polybenzimidazole shows permeability and selectivity for various gases due to a fractional free volume and well-connected picopores.

  • Patent number: 8609801
    Abstract: Polymers and copolymers containing 1H-benzo[d]imidazol-2(3H)-one units have been synthesized under conditions generally used for the synthesis of poly(aryl ether)s. 1H- benzo[d]imidazol-2(3H)-one behaves like a biphenol in the polymerization reaction. The soluble homopolymer has a very high glass transition temperature (348° C.), good thermal stability, and forms flexible transparent films. Because of the low molecular weight (134.14) of the benzoimidazolone monomer in the copolymer formed with 4,4?-biphenol that contains 30 mole % of the benzimidazolone unit, only 8.9 weight % is required to raise the Tg of the poly(arlyl ether)sulfone from 220° C. to 269° C.
