Formation of Cross-Linked Films from Immiscible Precursors through Sintering of Vitrimer Nanoparticles

Published on 2018-03-08T19:37:02Z (GMT) by
Colloidal dispersions of epoxy-acid vitrimers have been synthesized by miniemulsion polymerization. This versatile strategy enables obtaining stable cross-linked particles, even from initially incompatible precursors, while minimizing hydrolysis of the ester bonds formed during the curing. After drying of the latexes, trans-esterification exchanges occurring at high temperatures through interparticle interfaces induces an efficient sintering into homogeneous cross-linked polymer films.
