    Strong, Rebondable, Dynamic Cross-Linked Cellulose Nanocrystal Polymer Nanocomposite Adhesives,” Elvis Cudjoe, Katie M. Herbert, and Stuart J. Rowan. ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces, 2018

    Overview

    Nanocomposite adhesive films have been prepared via the oxidation of a thiol-endcapped semicrystalline oligomer with varying amounts of thiol-functionalized CNCs. Stronger substrate-bonding was achieved at temperatures where the disulfide bonds are dynamic. The 30 wt % nanocomposite adhesive was compared to some common commercially available adhesives and showed significantly stronger shear strengths when bonded to metal.

    Topological Effects in Isolated Poly[n]catenanes: Molecular Dynamics Simulations and Rouse Mode Analysis,” P.M. Rauscher, S.J. Rowan, JJ de Pablo. ACS Macro Letters, 7, 938-943, 2018

    Overview

    Molecular dynamics simulations of isolated poly[n]catenanes have been conducted, along with a Rouse mode analysis. At large length scales poly[n]catenanes do not relax much slower than isolated linear polymers and are less strongly impacted by increased segmental stiffness.
