TAILORING PROPERTIES OF CROSS-LINKED POLYIMIDE AEROGELS FOR BETTER MOISTURE RESISTANCE ...
American Chemical Society (2012)
Combinations of rigid and flexible aromatic diamines were used to tailor the properties of octa(aminophenyl)-silsesquioxane (OAPS) cross-linked polyimide aerogels. 2,2'-Dimethylbenzidine ...
Polyimide Aerogels Cross-Linked through Amine Functionalized Polyoligomeric Silsesquioxane
ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces (2011)
We report the first synthesis of polyimide aerogels cross-linked through a polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane, octa(aminophenyl)silsesquioxane (OAPS). Gels formed from polyamic ...
Flexible Nanofiber-Reinforced Aerogel (Xerogel) Synthesis, Manufacture, and Characterization
ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces (2009)
Silica aerogels are sol-gel-derived materials consisting of interconnected nanoparticle building blocks that form an open and highly porous three-dimensional silica ...
