Magic bubbles as: Voice polymer foam from a three-dimensional pore superhydrophobic materials for producing the magic

In view of the excellent mechanical properties of ultra-high strength to density ratio, super elasticity, pore volume and large energy absorption capacity, a three-dimensional (3D) pore material has been widely used in catalytic field of gas separation, sensing, tissue engineering, in many battery technology, ion exchange, micro-electronics, medical diagnostics and production, etc. play an important role. Recently, the School of Mechanical Engineering academician and professor Jiang Chong Wei Xueyong Germany Xi\’an Jiaotong University proposes a production method based on voice-activated polymer bubbles focused acoustic waves, and the preparation of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) foam as a template, by freeze – thaw cycles, for the magic bubbles, pores finally made lipophilic gelling material having superhydrophobic and polyvinyl alcohol (PVA).

preparation of microbubbles based on a surface acoustic wave

in this study, a method for preparing a surface acoustic wave focused voice based on the bubble, applicable not only to produce oil gas microbubbles, but are also suitable for water generating gas microbubbles. Microbubbles size can be adjusted in real time by adjusting the input frequency or driving voltage of the focused acoustic wave. This method can achieve regulation of the size of microbubbles in the microsecond time, which can range from 10μm regulation to hundreds of microns.

PVA in the PVA foam pores in the gel material preparation process, the first micro-bubbles by the composition as a template, by repeating the freeze-thaw cycles gelled PVA foam. Using micro gas bubbles of different sizes can be obtained gel material having pores of different porosity. The study also overcomes the PVA gel hydrophilic properties of the material itself, by hydrophobic modification treatment, gives PVA having excellent porosity and lipophilic gelling material superhydrophobic, it successfully for oil / water separation experiments. Experimental results show that PVA can absorb superhydrophobic include silicone oils, FC-40, and Novec 7500, and other oils, highly reliable oil-absorbing ability, canEnough to be used repeatedly. This method provides a new approach for the synthesis of new materials pores, has great potential in many fields, including biological tissue engineering and materials manufacturing.
