Synthesis of nanowalled polymer microtubes using glass fiber templates

Abstract:

Covalently crosslinked flexible polymer microtubes with wall thicknesses of 1-3 nm, diameters of 2-10 μm, and lengths of 0.1-0.5 mm have been fabricated using glass wool and silica wool as templates. Fluorescent-dye-tagged polyamines were adsorbed onto the glass and silica templates and crosslinked by reductive amination with glutaraldehyde and sodium cyanobor-ohydride, then the templates were dissolved with hydrofluoric acid. Microtubes were prepared from polyallylamine (PAA), polyethyleneim...
