Controlled fertiliser release via tunable poly(vinyl alcohol)/ammonium sulfate-coated nonwoven materials

In a recent study, nonwoven fabrics were coated with two different ammonium sulfate fertilizer loadings (27.75% and 55.50%) by using two different poly(vinyl alcohol) types (high and low molecular weight).

A facile inorganic modifier of acrylic emulsions for fabricating hybrid films with least aggregation of silica nanoparticles

Hybrid emulsions were prepared by mixing PreEm with AcEm. The emulsions gave transparent coating films at high silica content. The hardness of the films increased with increasing silica content.
