Matsugasaki Sakyo-ku, Kyoto, J a p a n The morphology developing during the spinodal decomposition process of polystyrene (PS)/poly(vinyl methyl ether) (PVME) blends was successfully controlled by photo-crosslink reactions between PS chains. The crosslink reaction was carried out by taking advantage of the photodimerization of anthracene moieties that are labeled on PS chains. Effects of photo-crosslinks on the morphology induced by temperature-jumps (T-jump) from the one-phase region into the spinodal region…
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.
