Novel analytical approaches for studying degradation in polypropylene and propylene-1-pentene copolymers
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2006-03)
Commercial polyolefins degrade under the influence of light, heat, chemical and mechanical factors. They are therefore stabilised to ensure that they maintain performance characteristics during their service life. Degradation ...
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 ...
Novel multidimensional fractionation techniques for the compositional analysis of impact polypropylene copolymers
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2013-03)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Impact Polypropylene Copolymers (IPCs) are extremely complex materials, consisting of a mixture of polypropylene homopolymer and copolymers having different comonomer (ethylene) contents and chemical ...
