Abstract: Abstract To study the possibility of the production of branched polypropylene (PP) by a reactive extrusion (REX) route, side chains were introduced on the backbone of a polypropylene material by reacting hexadecylamine with acrylic acid grafted PP. Experiments were carried out both in solution and in the melt, and the products were analyzed by FTIR, elemental analysis, dynamic mechanical, and rheological techniques. Analysis of the FTIR spectra of the samples produced in the solution reactions, at an equal mo…
