Strong, Rebondable, Dynamic Cross-Linked Cellulose Nanocrystal Polymer Nanocomposite Adhesives

“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.
