2019 AUG 14 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at NewsRx Life Science Daily -- A new study on Life Science Research - Organic Research is now available. According to news reporting originating in Akron, United States, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, “A series of organic-inorganic hybrid coatings were formulated using cyclohexane based polyester polyol reacting with hexamethylene diisocyanate isocyanurate (3HDI) as the organic polyurethane phase. The inorganic phase consisted of various sol-gel precursors [Tetraethyl orthosilicate (TEOS), Titanium(IV) isopropoxide (TIP), Zirconium(IV) propoxide (ZAP)]. 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane (APTES) mono-functionalized HDI (APTES-3HDI) was used as a coupling agent to link the organic phase and inorganic phase.”
The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from the University of Akron, “The hetero-bonded siliconoxygen-metal (Si-O-Metal) colloids resulting from a mixed species of sol-gel precursors within hybrids were formed and confirmed by Solid State NMR. The effect of mixed sol-gel precursors was investigated and optimized using design of experiments (DOES) for the viscoelastic, mechanical, and coating properties.”
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: “The synergistic effect of eliminating the phase separation and enhancing coating properties were observed from small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM).”
