Porous polymer films cast from latex-glucose dispersions
Macroporous films of glassy polymer are prepared from stable aqueous dispersions of latex with dissolved glucose, coated on a carrier substrate and dried at elevated temperature to a hybrid film, followed by water immersion to leach out the glucose and any redispersible latex. Temperature and time of drying must be tailored to facilitate local coalescence of latex particles by glucose expulsion while avoiding complete demixing of the two phases. The conditions for which mutual interpenetration...[Show more]
