Vulcanization, centrifugation, water-washing, and polymeric covering processes to optimize natural rubber membranes applied to microfluidic devices
(Journal Of Materials Science, 2016-03-01) [Artigo]
Natural rubber microfluidic devices are based on the replication of microchannels and chambers through the casting of latex and combine the flexibility and transparency of the polymeric platform. Natural rubber is a proposed ...
Characterization of natural rubber/gold nanoparticles SERS-active substrate
(Journal of Applied Polymer Science, 2013-10-05) [Artigo]
Natural rubber/gold nanoparticles membranes (NR/Au) were studied by ultrasensitive detection and chemical analysis through surface-enhanced Raman scattering and surface-enhanced resonance Raman scattering in our previous ...
Organic acids and protein compounds causing the photoluminescence properties of natural rubber membranes and the quenching phenomena from Au nanoparticle incorporation
(Luminescence, 2014-12-01) [Artigo]
Natural rubber membranes were fabricated using latex from Hevea brasiliensis trees (clone RRIM 600) by casting, and controlling the time and temperature of thermal treatment. Three temperatures were used: 65, 80 and 120 ...
Green synthesis of gold nanoparticles with self-sustained natural rubber membranes
(Journal of Nanomaterials, 2013-10-14) [Artigo]
Green chemistry is an innovative way to approach the synthesis of metallic nanostructures employing eco-friendly substances (natural compounds) acting as reducing agents. Usually, slow kinetics are expected due to, use of ...
