Propylene / 1-pentene random copolymers : preparation, characterisation and commercialisation
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2002-03)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Most polypropylene copolymers commercially available have ethylene, and to a lesser degree t-butene as comonomers. Commercially available higher a-olefins, mostly even-numbered, are seldom used for the ...
New monomer for hydrophobic acrylic copolymers and their novel properties
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2006-12)
The synthesis and characterization of a new tertiary alcohol (2-octyl-2-dodecanol) and “bushy-tailed”, hydrophobic acrylic monomer (2-octyl-dodecyl acrylate) from a 1-decene dimer (2-octyl-1-dodecene) precursor that was ...
The structure-property relationships of polyolefins
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2009-03)
Polypropylene is an extremely versatile material and has a broad spectrum of applications due to the variations in properties which are possible with this material. The variations in the properties of the material are ...
The effect of iodo alkyl chain transfer agents on the seeded emulsion homo- and co-polimerisation of styrene and butyl acrylate
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 1999)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: A free-radical polymerisation process, which has characteristics of a living polymerisation system, as it is capable of producing polymers of pre-determined molecular masses with a narrow molecular ...
Investigation of the copolymerization of butyl acrylate (BA) with vinyl neononanoate (VeoVA-9)
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2006-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This study has the goal of illuminating structure-properties relationships for copolymers of vinyl neononanoate (VeoVa-9) and butyl acrylate (BA). The VeoVa-9/BA copolymers were prepared using solution ...
