Neutron reflectometry investigation of polymer-polymer reactions at the interface between immiscible polymers

Coote, Michelle; Gordon, Duncan H; Hutchings, Lian R; Richards, Randal W; Dalgliesh, Robert M


Primary amine end functionalised deuteropolystyrene has been mixed with unmodified hydrogenous polystyrene and a thin film placed on top of a film of an acrylic polymer that either has carboxylic acid groups located at one end of each molecule or as substituents on each repeat unit. After holding at 453 K for defined times, the interfacial excess layer at the interface between the two polymers has been quantitatively analysed using neutron reflectometry and the extent of grafting of the...[Show more]
