Preparation and Properties of Bio-Based Waterborne Polyurethane Modified by Zinc Oxide
In the present study, a kind of bio-based waterborne polyurethane (BWPU) /ZnO was prepared with BWPU and different concentrations of nanometer ZnO emulsion by incorporated into the BWPU matrix. The prepared BWPU/ZnO hybrid dispersions were casted in a Teflon petridish and the dried films were used for XRD, SEM, FT-IR and antibacterial tests. The results suggest that the BWPU/ZnO hold the potential applications as new materials.
