We use a multiscale computational approach to study reactive compatibilization in an immiscible binary AB blend that contains A-like and B-like interacting molecules. These molecules are modeled as spherical particles that react at the A/B interface to form A-B dumbbells. Through these simulations, we investigate the reaction kinetics and interfacial morphology of the system as a function of time for different densities of reacting molecules and diffusivities of the dumbbells. The results… CONTINUE READING
