On the mechanical properties of HIPE templated macroporous poly(dicyclopentadiene) prepared with low surfactant amounts

Author affiliations

Abstract

Reducing the surfactant amount below generally accepted values in polyHIPE chemistry allowed for distinctly improving the mechanical properties of ROMP derived HIPE templated poly(dicyclopentadiene) without compromising the open cellular structure of the scaffold rendering the preparation of a ductile polymer foam with 80% porosity and a Young's modulus of 110 MPa possible.
