Semi‐interpenetrating networks have been produced from castor oil and poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET). Bond interchange between PET and castor oil plays a major role in the development of initial miscibility, also affecting morphology and chemical structure. Microheterogeneous morphology is developed for materials of intermediate composition, which have much greater toughness than the polymers from which they were made.
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.
