By Bastian Ebeling

This doctoral thesis explains the synthesis and characterization of novel, clever hybrid nanomaterials. Bastian Ebeling combines during this paintings artificial polymers with inorganic nanoparticles from silica or gold.
The first chapters supply a accomplished creation to fundamentals of polymer technology and the utilized methodologies. In following chapters, the writer describes intimately how he systematically adapted the polymers utilizing reversible addition-fragmentation chain move polymerization (RAFT) for mixture with inorganic nanoparticles.
This paintings additionally unravels mechanistic, thermodynamic, and structural elements of all development blocks and response steps. the tactic defined this is uncomplicated to accomplish and opens up pathways to new units of nanohybrid fabrics with strength functions as sensors, in strength conversion, or catalysis. Readers will discover a distinctive photo of the step-by step formation of latest advanced nanomaterials. It deals polymer scientists a scientific advisor to the formation and synthesis of a brand new type of responsive nanomaterials.

1c) are among the most commonly used RAFT agents. [127] In this work, most of the used RAFT agents are of trithiocarbonate type. 2 Molar-mass distributions The degrees of polymerization (and therefore also the molar masses) in polymer materials are not identical for all macromolecules, but distributed over a certain range. In order to describe this distribution of chain lengths, usually a distribution function∗ is given, by which the relative frequency of respective molecules can be calculated for all chain lengths in the material.

151,152] The segregated polymer globules subsequently aggregate. This in turn renders the solution turbid, due to the different refractive indices of the components, or potentially even visible flocks and a two-phase system are formed. 4. [154–156] Above the cloud temperature, this number drastically drops to almost zero—the polymer becomes hydrophobic. Strictly speaking, the LCST is only the critical temperature at the minimum of the two-phase region for a certain polymer concentration, the temperature below which the components of a mixture are miscible for all compositions.

94,95] The growing polymer chains quickly add to the reactive carbon–sulfur double bond of the RAFT agent and a tertiary radical intermediate is formed (pre-equilibrium). The stability of this intermediate radical is affected by the Z-group. [96] This stabilization, however, must not be too strong, since the formed radical must be able to easily decompose in the next step. [97,98] In principle, there exist two possible decomposition pathways for the intermediate RAFT-centered radical: Either the reverse reaction of the described addition takes place, which simply regenerates the initial RAFT agent and the polymer radical, or the R-group is split off and a macromolecular RAFT agent is obtained.
