Poly(methyl methacrylates) (PMMA) containing both tethered and untethered polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes (POSS) were investigated using wide angle X-ray diffraction (WAXD), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and rheological characterization. Unfilled, entangled polymers were synthesized and tested in small amplitude oscillatory shear. The addition of tethered-POSS to the PMMA chain leads to a decrease in the plateau modulus (GN) as expected from previous results on POSS-polymer… CONTINUE READING
