Chemical stability of poly(phenylene oxide)-based ionomers in an anion exchange-membrane fuel cell environment
Sapir Willdorf-Cohen, Abhishek N. Mondal, Dario R. Dekel, Charles E. Diesendruck
Journal of Materials Chemistry A, 22234-22239, 6 (2018)

In recent years, intense research interest has been focused towards the development of anion exchange membrane fuel cells (AEMFCs) due to their potential to circumvent the need for expensive platinum catalysts, tackling the high cost that impedes mass commercialization of fuel cells. However, AEMFC… read more

Synthesis and sorptive properties of molecularly imprinted polymer for simultaneous isolation of catecholamines and their metabolites from biological fluids
Anton Podjava & Arturs Silaks
Journal of Liquid Chromatography & Related Technologies, , 44 (2021)

Simultaneous quantitative analysis of catecholamines (CAs) and their respective acid metabolites in biological fluids can become a powerful tool for diagnosis and treatment of various diseases. However, selective sample preparation procedure is necessary to isolate the aforementioned analytes from … read more

Muconic acid esters as bio-based acrylate mimics
Greg Quintens, Jeroen H. Vrijsen, Peter Adriaensens, Dirk Vanderzande, Tanja Junkers
Polymer Chemistry, 5555-5563, 10(40) (2019)

Over the course of the last century, a large number of synthetic polymers has been developed and introduced. Yet, most polymer materials are based on fossil fuels as raw materials and are associated with a considerable environmental impact. trans,trans-Muconic acid esters are interesting plant-base… read more

Polymer–mesoporous silica composites for drug release systems
Agnieszka Kierys, Radosław Zaleski, Marta Grochowicz, Marek Gorgol, Andrzej Sienkiewicz
Microporous and Mesoporous Materials, 109881, 294 (2020)

The research describes systematic approach to the novel synthesis and formation of a potential organic-inorganic drug carriers. The poly(trimethylolpropane trimethacrylate) and polymer-silica composites based on SBA-3 or SBA-15 mesoporous silica were fabricated by the suspension-emulsion polymeriza… read more

Handling CO2 sorption mechanism in PIL@IL composites
Marcileia Zanatta, Mónica Lopes, Eurico J. Cabrita, Carlos E.S. Bernardes, Marta C. Corvo
Journal of CO2 Utilization, 101225, 41 (2020)

The mitigation of climate change effects requires the use of alternative materials and technologies to control CO2 atmospheric levels through its capture, storage and use. In this field, the current work presents the evaluation of two poly(ionic liquid)s (PILs) (poly-1-vinyl-3-ethylimidazolium acet… read more

The AEROPILs Generation: Novel Poly(Ionic Liquid)-Based Aerogels for CO2 Capture
Raquel V. Barrulas , Clara López-Iglesias, Marcileia Zanatta, Teresa Casimiro, Gonzalo Mármol, Manuela Ribeiro Carrott, Carlos A. García-González and Marta C. Corvo
International Journal of Molecular Sciences, 200, 23(1) (2021)

CO2 levels in the atmosphere are increasing exponentially. The current climate change effects motivate an urgent need for new and sustainable materials to capture CO2. Porous materials are particularly interesting for processes that take place near atmospheric pressure. However, materials design sh… read more

Effect of CO2 on the properties of anion exchange membranes for fuel cell applications
Noga Ziv, Abhishek N. Mondal, Thomas Weissbach, Steven Holdcroft, Dario R. Dekel
Journal of Membrane Science, 140-150, 586 (2019)

In this study the effect of CO2, HCO3‾ and CO32‾ on the ionic conductivity and water uptake properties of anion exchange membranes (AEMs) was investigated in order to better understand the detrimental effect of ambient air feed on the performance of AEM fuel cells. Three types of AEMs were examined… read more
