An 2-ureido-4[1H]pyrimidinone (UPy) motif with self-association capability (through quadruple hydrogen bonds) was successfully anchored onto montmorillonite clay layers. Polymer/clay nanocomposites were prepared by specific hydrogen bonding interactions between surface functionalized silica nanoclays and UPy-bonded supramolecular poly(ethylene glycol) or poly(É-caprolactone). The mixed morphologies including intercalated layers with a non-uniform separation and exfoliated single layers isolated from any stack were determined by combined X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopic measurements. Thermal analyses showed that all nanocomposites had higher decomposition temperatures and thermal stabilities compared with neat polymer. The differential scanning calorimetric data implied that the crystallinity of polymers did not show essential changes upon introduction of organomodified UPy clays.

Visualization of one-dimensional diffusion and spontaneous segregation of hydrogen in single crystals of VO2 Kasirga, T. S.; Coy, J. M.; Park, J. H.; Cobden, D. H. (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2016-07)Hydrogen intercalation in solids is common, complicated, and very difficult to monitor. In a new approach to the problem, we have studied the profile of hydrogen diffusion in single-crystal nanobeams and plates of VO2, ...

Şahin, H.; Ataca, C.; Çıracı, Salim (AIP Publishing, 2009)Using first principles calculations, we show that each hydrogen vacancy created at graphane surface results in a local unpaired spin. For domains of hydrogen vacancies the situation is, however, complex and depends on the ...
