摘要: The styrene-glycidyl methacrylate (SG) copolymer can be used to compatibilize the immiscible and incompatible blends between polystyrene (PS) and liquid crystalline polymer (LCP) copolyester. The epoxy functional groups present in the SG copolymer can react with the carboxylic and/or the hydroxyl terminal groups of the LCP at interface to form the SG-g-LCP copolymer during melt processing. This in situ-formed graft copolymer tends to reside along the interface to reduce the interfacial tension in the melt state and to increase the interphase adhesion in the solid state. However, the compatibilized PS/LCP blends reduce the number of LCP fibrils formed and have a tendency to form droplet LCP domains. The overall mechanical properties, stiffness and toughness of the blends improved after compatibilization, but the extent of the improvement is not very significant. It appears that the gain from the adhesion enhancement is more than offset by the loss due to the reduction in LCP fibril formation. The ethyl triphenylsphosponium bromide catalyst can further improve the compatibility of the blends by increasing the rate of the graft reaction. Copyright (C) 1996 Elsevier Science Ltd.
