Polypropylene/filler nanocomposites by melt compounding and in situ polymerization
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The properties of polymer nanocomposites depend greatly on the chemistry of the polymer matrices, the nature of the nanofillers, and the way in which they are prepared. Understanding the synthesis–str ...
Molecular weight effects on crystallization of polypropylene
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2011-03)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The crystallization of polyolefins is an important parameter in determining the properties of such materials. The crystallization phenomenon generally depends on the molecular symmetry (tacticity) and ...
