Thermo-responsive PNIPAM nanofibres crosslinked by OpePOSS

Wang, Jing and Hurren, Christopher and Sutti, Alessandra and Lin, Tong and Wang, Xungai (2013) Thermo-responsive PNIPAM nanofibres crosslinked by OpePOSS. In: 4th International Conference on Smart Materials and Nanotechnology in Engineering (SMN 2013), 10-12 Jul 2013, Gold Coast, Australia.


Stable and re-usable thermo-responsive hydrogel nanofibres were produced by electrospinning poly(Nisopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) in presence of a polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) possessing eight epoxide groups, and of a 2-ethyl-4-methylimidazole (EMI) as a catalyst, followed
by a heat curing treatment. The roles of the organic-base catalyst in the formation of crosslinked polymer network, fibre morphologies, and hydrogel properties were examined in this paper.
