My recent work has shown that PALM-like imaging of DNA can achieve a spatial resolution below 40 nm by using intercalating cyanine dyes in combination with a buffer that promotes photo-blinking.
It was only recently that researchers succeeded in intercalating polymers into the clay layers and thereby prepared PCNs that not only exhibit outstanding mechanical properties but also very good barrier and thermal properties.
Among various routes to prepare exfoliated polymer nanocomposites in the past, the most frequently used approaches are to treat MMT clay with organic intercalating agents to improve compatibility between organophilic monomers/polymers and hydrophilic MMT clay, thus facilitating the intercalation/exfoliation of clay in the polymer matrix.
There are two representative techniques for intercalating the matrix polymer molecule between clay platelets: melt intercalation and solution intercalation.
It is believed that clay agglomeration prevented the polymer chains from fully wetting and intercalating the clay particles, and therefore these sites serve as low resistance gas transport pathways in the nanocomposite material.
