Pyrolysis-FTIR and TGA techniques as tools in the characterization of blends of natural rubber and SBR
The employment of used tyres as a new source of raw materials for different applications can be a partial solution to the great environmental problems generated by these products concerning theirExpand
Synthesis and Characterization of Double Crystalline Cyclic Diblock Copolymers of Poly(ε-caprolactone) and Poly(l(d)-lactide) (c(PCL-b- PL(D)LA)).
The synthesis of symmetric cyclo poly(ε-caprolactone)-block-poly(l(d)-lactide) (c(PCL-b-PL(D)LA)) by combining ring-opening polymerization of ε-caprolactone and lactides and subsequent clickExpand
Thermal and thermo-oxidative degradation of poly(hydroxy ether of bisphenol-A) studied by TGA/FTIR and TGA/MS
Abstract The nature and the extent of degradation of poly(hydroxy ether of bisphenol-A) phenoxy resin were analysed by thermogravimetry (TGA/DTGA) under nitrogen and air atmosphere. DecompositionExpand
Sequential crystallization and morphology of triple crystalline biodegradable PEO-b-PCL-b-PLLA triblock terpolymers
The sequential crystallization of poly(ethylene oxide)-b-poly(e-caprolactone)-b-poly(L-lactide) (PEO-b-PCL-b-PLLA) triblock terpolymers, in which the three blocks are able to crystallize separatelyExpand
Application of high resolution thermogravimetry to the study of thermal stability of poly(vinyl chloride) resins
The influence of microstructure on thermal degradation behaviour was studied in five samples of pure poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) obtained at different polymerisation temperatures. Tacticity of theExpand
Thermal decomposition of phenoxy/clay nanocomposites: Effect of organoclay microstructure
Abstract The influence of organoclays on the thermal decomposition pathway of poly(hydroxyl ether of bisphenol A) (Ph) was analysed under nitrogen and air. In the two clays employed, montmorilloniteExpand
Compositional variation of glass-transition temperature in miscible polymer blends involving weak and strong specific interactions
The miscibilities of some styrene derivatives (polystyrene (PS), poly(p-methylstyrene) (PPMS) and poly(p-vinyl phenol) (PVPh)) with poly(cyclohexyl methacrylate) (PCHMA) have been compared byExpand
Self-Nucleation of Crystalline Phases Within Homopolymers, Polymer Blends, Copolymers, and Nanocomposites
Self-nucleation (SN) is a special nucleation process triggered by self-seeds or self-nuclei that are generated in a given polymeric material by specific thermal protocols or by inducing chainExpand
Dielectric, mechanical and transport properties of bisphenol a polycarbonate/graphene nanocomposites prepared by melt blending
Nanocomposites based on polycarbonate (PC) and different amounts of untreated graphene nanoplatelets (GnP) (from 1 to 7 wt %) were prepared by melt blending. The nanocomposites were thoroughlyExpand
Plasticization and anti-plasticization effects caused by poly(lactide-ran-caprolactone) addition to double crystalline poly(L-lactide)/poly(ε-caprolactone) blends
The effect of adding poly(lactide-ran-caprolactone), P(LA-ran-CL), random copolymers to melt mixed poly(lactide)(PLA)/poly(e-caprolactone)(PCL) 80/20 blends is investigated. The concentration ofExpand
