    The aim of this paper is to demonstrate the applicability of the Small Punch Test (SPT) in the mechanical characterization of polymers, following previous achievements in metallic materials. For this purpose, different ...
  • Properties of bio-based gum Arabic/clay aerogels 

    Wang, Liang; Sánchez Soto, Miguel; Abt, Tobias Martin (2016-11-30)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Lightweight bio-based aerogels from sustainable gum Arabic (GA) and sodium montmorillonite (Na+-MMT) clay were prepared by means of a simple freeze-drying process. GA/clay aerogels showed high porosity (87.9%–94.9%) of ...

    The present work deals with the preparation and characterization of improved fire-retardant ethylene-acrylate foams. A commercial formulation, usually employed in the cable industry sector, Casico, was modified using two ...
  • Reactive extrusion: A useful process to manufacture structurally modified PLA/o-MMT composites 

    Cailloux, Jonathan; Bin Raja-Nazri, Raja Nazrul Hakim; Santana Pérez, Orlando Onofre; Bou, Jordi; Abt, Tobias Martin; Sánchez Soto, Miguel; Carrasco, Felix; Maspoch Rulduà, Mª Lluïsa (2016-05-26)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    In the present work, poly(lactic acid) (PLA) sheets reinforced with organically modified montmorillonite (o-MMT) were manufactured through reactive extrusion-calendering using a masterbatch approach in a pilot plant. ...
  • A Review of the recent advances in cyclic butylene terephthalate technology and its composites 

    Abt, Tobias Martin; Sánchez Soto, Miguel (2016-05)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Cyclic butylene terephthalate (CBT®) oligomers are a relatively new class of material and are capable of polymerizing in an entropically driven ring-opening polymerization into high-molecular-weight polymerized CBT (pCBT) ...
  • Microwave-crosslinked Bio-based Starch/Clay aerogels 

    Wang, Liang; Sánchez Soto, Miguel; Maspoch Rulduà, Mª Lluïsa; Santana Pérez, Orlando Onofre (2016)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Foam-like robust starch/sodium montmorillonite (Na+-MMT) aerogels were fabricated through a freeze-drying process. Glutaraldehyde (GL) was used to crosslink the starch aerogels with the assistance of radiation supplied by ...
  • Tough polymer aerogels incorporating a conformal inorganic coating for low flammability and durable hydrophobicity 

    Sun, Hua; Schiraldi, David A.; Chen, Dayong; Wang, Danqi; Sánchez Soto, Miguel (2016-05)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Both inorganic and polymeric aerogels are well-known in the materials field. Inorganic aerogels are generally susceptible to brittle fracture, while polymeric aerogels tend to exhibit low modului and high flammability. To ...
  • Viscoelastic properties of polycarbonate-graphene nanoplatelets nanocomposite foams
