Block copolymers are ubiquitous materials with a vast range of applications, e.g. in drug delivery, photolithography, chemical sensors, surfactants, and as templates for the production of hard materials. The properties of these materials and hence the range of potential applications arise from the ability to combine an array of chemical functionalities and architectures that can be...
3. Exploring the *in meso* crystallization mechanism by using synchrotron Small Angle X-ray Scattering
Ms Leonie van 't Hag (University of Melbourne / CSIRO)
Recently, the development of a novel *in meso* crystallization method has facilitated the structural determination of several biologically relevant membrane proteins (MPs). However, *in meso* crystallization remains poorly understood as MPs are difficult to express and handle. An improved understanding of this technique can lead to an improved success rate and facilitate the structural...
62. Influence of different side-chains on the morphology and device physics of all-polymer solar cells.
Mr Kedar Deshmukh (Monash University)
Semiconducting polymers are interesting materials that can be used as the active layer in light-emitting diodes, transistors and solar cells. In a polymer solar cell, the blending of donor and acceptor materials is required to achieve effective charge generation. Historically, fullerene derivatives have been used as the acceptor material due their high electron affinity, but fullerenes only...
100. Water and organic solvent behavior of thin and long cellulose nanofibrils easily deconstructed from Australian arid grass T. pungens
Dr Nasim Amiralian (The University of Queensland), Dr Pratheep Kumar ANNAMALAI (The University of Queensland)
The utilisation of lignocellulosic plant biomass has gained revived interest due to the increased awareness fuel economy and sustainable materials. Many teams around the world are producing nanocellulose by the careful removal of some or the entire matrix to produce nanocellulose. Recently we have discovered and patented a unique, very high quality grade of nanofibrillated cellulose (NFC) or...
