novel approaches to polymer blends based on polymer nanoparticles - polymer blends
If the polymer layers have a multi-component phase, they can show significantly improved performance
Form of separation.
We present two methods for controlling the phase separation size of thin polymerblend layers;
Both depend on Polymer nanospheres prepared through a fine emulsion process.
In the first method, a heterogeneous solid layer is prepared by a water dispersion containing two polymer nanoparticles, whereas in the second method, both polymers are already included in each individual
In both cases, the upper limit of the phase separation size is determined by the size of a single nanoparticles, which can be adjusted to dozens of nanometers.
We also show the efficiency of using two solar cells
The component particles are comparable to the devices prepared from the solution under comparable light conditions and are not affected by the solvent selection used in the mini-emulsion process.
