Surface modification of an ethylene-acrylic acid copolymer film: grafting amine-terminated linear and branched architectures.

Polymer films can be tailored for a specific application by modifying their surface properties. In this study, linear and branched architectures were grafted to ethylene-acrylic acid (EAA) copolymer films using the so-called grafting from approach. Dicyclohexylcarbodiimide was used to activate the carboxylic acid functionality on the surface of the EAA… CONTINUE READING
