|Title:||Synthesis and characterization of styrene-butyl acrylate polymers, varying feed composition in a semicontinuous emulsion process|
|Abstract:||Two-stage polymerization has been used to improve properties of two-component polymers. In this work, a semicontinuous emulsion process varying feed composition along the reaction is used to produce copolymer chains of different composition as conversion proceeds. Polymer composition and evidence of branching were determined by 1H-NMR. Polymer molecular weight values determined by GPC are beyond the range where mechanical properties depend on molecular weight. Mechanodynamic properties show a copolymer type behavior with a synergistic effect around the 50/50 styrene/butyl acrylate composition ratio. For such composition, mechanical performance superiority of variable composition copolymer with respect to two-stage polymer was confirmed with stress-strain tests carried out at several temperatures. © 2006 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.|
