To investigate effect of surface morphology on optical absorbance of active layer of PCDTBT: P[C.sub.71]Bm, UV-Vis spectra of the active layers prepared by using different organic solvents were investigated.
Most organic solvents are highly volatile and enter the body through the lungs, but can also enter through the mouth and skin.
A typical solvent based coating may contain a blend of up to a dozen or so organic solvents with different vapour pressures, solubilities, evaporation rates, surface tensions etc to influence the balance of desired coatings properties as indicated earlier.
Organic solvents are typically present in paints, adhesives, glues, plastics and fuels (1).
"This development is particularly important because most of the existing polymer-based membranes are unstable in organic solvents whereas the developed graphene-oxide membrane is highly stable," she added.
Thus, the MB fluorescence decreases with the addition of water in organic solvent, in agreement with data presented in Figure 3.
The synthesis of polymers in organic solvents, a widely adopted practice on industrial scales, has been gradually replaced by methods that employ water as the solvent.
ABSTRACT: The present study was conducted to analyze the effect of three different organic solvents (Ethanol, Methanol and Acetone) on delignification of rice husk (basmati rice).
Most of the work on the polymerization of HEMA in aqueous solution has been carried out using water-soluble photoinitiators and information is lacking on their behavior in organic solvents. It would be worthwhile to evaluate the efficiency of these photoinitiators in the polymerization of HEMA in organic solvents.
Under the same reporting conditions, it was found that the optimum sonication time to obtain good dispersion in organic solvent was about 4 h where 2 h of tip sonication was enough for the surfactant aided dispersion.
[PC.sub.71]BM is an organic material chemically modified to be dissolved in an organic solvent. To enhance the hole transport characteristic, a thin film of poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene):poly(styrenesulfonate) [PEDOT:PSS] was prepared by using a commercially available material of PH1000 (Heraeus Clevios), which serves as a hole transfer layer interfaced with the anode and electron donor layer of PTB7.
