The rheological properties of polystyrene (PS) and poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) composites filled with monodisperse sized crosslinked polymeric particles are sensitive to processing history and chemical composition. Particles compatible with the matrix, such as PMMA or copolystyrene‐vinylphenol in a PMMA matrix, are randomly dispersed on mixing, yielding (almost) Newtonian fluids. Particles incompatible with the matrix, such as PS or copolystyrene‐acetoxystyrene in PMMA, produce composites whose …
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.
