Abstract: The biobased renewable monomer 2,5-diformylfuran is polymerised using various N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) catalysts in dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) affording a low molar mass polymer. It is shown that catalyst structure as well as the temperature and time the polymerization is running have a noticeable effect on its molar mass. The obtained material is ch...

Abstract: In the current study, the effect of flyash (FA) on the physic-mechanical, electrical, thermal and morphological behavior of nylon-66 (PA) was investigated. PA/FA composites were prepared by melt mixing via twin screw extruder, with varying weight percent (5 wt %, 10 wt %, 15 wt % and 20 wt %) of flyash. The results of composites were optimized and compa...
