  • A highly self-plasticized poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) is demonstrated for the first time via click grafting of hyperbranched polyglycerol (HPG). The plasticizing effect of the grafted HPG on PVC is systematically investigated by various analytical methods. The amorphous and bulky dendritic structure of HPG efficiently increases the free volume of the grafted PVC, which leads to a remarkably lower glass transition temperature comparable to that of the conventional plasticized PVC. Viscoelastic… CONTINUE READING
