Heteroarm star copolymers as emulsifying agents in polymer blends (Journal article)

Tsitsilianis, C./ Voulgaris, D./ Kosmas, M.


We investigate the efficiency of heteroarm star copolymers of the type A(n),B-n, synthesized by anionic polymerization, as compatibilizers of an A/B polymer blend. By measuring the size of the dispersed phase the star with n = 6 is found to be a better emulsifying agent than the diblock (n = 1) or the star with n = 9. These experimental observations agree with theoretical predictions. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
