Novel robust cellulose-based foam with pH and light dual-response for oil recovery

We fabricated pH and light dual-responsive adsorption materials which could induce the transition of surface wettability between hydrophobicity and hydrophilicity by using ATRP. The structure and morphology of adsorption materials were confirmed …

Fluorinated poly(ether sulfone) ionomers with disulfonated naphthyl pendants for proton exchange membrane applications

Proton exchange membranes based on fluorinated poly(ether sulfone)s with disulfonated naphthyl pendants (sSPFES) have been successfully prepared by post functionalization through polymeric SNAr reaction. Copolymer structure was confirmed by …

Facile synthesis of perfect ZnSn(OH)6 octahedral microcrystallines with controlled size and high sensing performance towards ethanol

Uniform and monodisperse ZnSn(OH)6 perfect octahedrons have been synthesized by a facile coprecipitation reaction process. The particle size of the asprepared ZnSn(OH)6 octahedral structure can be readily controlled by adjusting the reaction …

Utilization of surface differences to improve dyeing properties of poly(m-phenylene isophthalamide) membranes

Bulk poly(m-phenylene isophthalamide) (PMIA) can achieve flexibility upon dissolution by a LiCl/dimethylacetamide co-solvent, but remains hydrophobic despite the occasional emergence of cis amide groups providing a weak negative charge. In this …

In vitro corrosion of magnesium alloy AZ31 — a synergetic influence of glucose and Tris

Biodegradable Mg alloys have generated great interest for biomedical applications. Accurate predictions of in vivo degradation of Mg alloys through cost-effective in vivo evaluations require the latter to be conducted in an environment close to …

About this journal

Frontiers of Materials Science is a peer-reviewed international journal that publishes high quality reviews/mini-reviews, full-length research papers, and short Communications recording the latest pioneering studies on all aspects of materials science.

The subjects are seen from international and interdisciplinary perspectives covering areas including (but not limited to): biomaterials including biomimetics and biomineralization; nano materials; polymers and composites; new metallic materials; advanced ceramics; materials modeling and computation; frontier materials synthesis and characterization; novel methods for materials manufacturing; materials performance; materials applications in energy, information and biotechnology.

This journal is jointly published by Higher Education Press and Springer. Only manuscripts in English are accepted. No page charge is levied, and even the extra costs associated with color figure reproduction are not expected to be met by the author.
