Effect of Molecular Weight on the Cross-linking of Siloxanes by High-energy Radiation

RECENT work has shown that many long-chain polymers1,2 can be cross-linked by high-energy radiation; although polymers containing only carbon atoms in the main chain have been studied in great detail, the same effect has been observed in polymers in which the main chain comprises alternating carbon and oxygen atoms (‘Carbowax’) or silicon and oxygen… CONTINUE READING
