Direct grafting of polystyrene onto polyethylene has been carried out in a twin screw extruder with an organic peroxide and a crosslinking co‐agent. The reaction extruded blends exhibited enhancement in impact properties at an optimum level of peroxide and co‐agent. Further improvement was achieved by introducing styrene monomer into the system during reactive extrusion. The structure and morphology of the blends were studied using differential scanning calorimetry, scanning electron microscopy, infr…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
