Environmentally Friendly Hybrid Polysilsesquioxane-Poly(Butyl Acrylate) Nanocomposite: Film Properties
- 42 Downloads
Inorganic-organic core-shell polysilsesquioxane-poly(butyl acrylate) hybrid latex nanoparticles were synthesized via emulsion polymerization. FTIR spectroscopy and dynamic light scattering (DLS) confirmed core-shell structure of the resultant hybrid latex nanoparticles. Hybrid core-shell nanocomposite film underwent drying in a shorter period of time in comparison with the polysilsesquioxane latex, due to the lower Brownian diffusivity of its latex nanoparticles. It also revealed less hydrophilicity and higher resistance to water whitening, compared to the seed latex film.
