    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract Nanocomposites have great potential for the rational synthesis of tailored materials. However, the templating process that transfers the self-organized nanostructure of a block copolymer or other mesophase onto the functional material is by no means trivial, and often involves multiple steps, each of which presents its own chemical and physical challenges. As a result the nanocomposite may not be homogeneous, but can be phase-separated into various components which may feature their own specific microstructure. Here it is shown how scanning microbeam small-angle X-ray scattering (µSAXS) can be used to characterize a thermoset resol/poly(isoprene-block-ethylene oxide) nanocomposite on multiple length scales with respect to homogeneity and microphase separation.
