The monomer, p-acryloyloxybenzoic acid (ABA) was synthesized by condensation reaction of acryloyl chloride and p-hydroxybenzoic acid in alkaline medium. Polymerization of the monomer and grafting of the produced polymer (PABA) onto high density polyethylene (HDPE) were expected to be carried simultaneously in melt mixing at high temperature. The graft copolymerization was studied at varying concentrations of the monomer in the reaction mixture at constant temperature (200 0C). Grafted HDPE samples were investigated by several techniques such as DSC, FTIR, MFI and mechanical testing. The tensile tests of PABA-g-HDPE showed an improvement particularly in stress at yield and Young’s modulus whereas the strain at break values showed a decrease for all compositions compared to neat HDPE.

Acryloyloxybenzoic acid (ABA) was prepared by the condensation reaction of acryloyl chloride with p-hydroxybenzoic acid in alkaline medium. The polymerization and grafting of ABA onto Polypropylene were anticipated to occur simultaneously in melt mixing at high temperature. The monomer showed liquid crystalline property. For a better dispersion of ABA in PP before graft copolymerization, a masterbatch of 50-50 (by weight) low density polyethylene + ABA was prepared, which was then used for 5, 10, 15 % ABA +...

P-xylene-bis(diethylsulphonium chloride) (PXBDC) monomer was synthesized by the reaction of a,a-dichloro-p-xylene with tetrahydrothiophene or diethyl sulphide. Electrochemical behavior of this monomer (PXBDC) was examined by cyclic voltametry. Polymerization was achieved both by using electrochemical and chemical polymerization techniques. In the electrochemical technique, PPV was synthesized by constant potential electrolysis in acetonitrile-tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBAFB) solvent-electrolyte ...

The monomers, p-acryloyloxybenzoic acid (ABA) and p-methacryloyloxybenzoic acid (MBA) were synthesized by condensation reaction of corresponding acid chlorides with p-hydroxybenzoic acid in alkaline medium. The polymerization of the monomers were studied by several techniques. Polyacryloyloxybenzoic acid (PABA) was obtained by ?-radiation induced, solution and bulk melt polymerization by initiation of dicumyl peroxide (DCP). Polymethacryloyloxybenzoic acid (PMBA) could be obtained by only bulk melt polymeri...

Terephthalic acid bis-(thiophen-3-ylmethyl)thioester (TTMT) was synthesized via the reaction of thiophen-3-ylmethanethiol with terephthaloyl dichloride. Nuclear magnetic resonance (1H-NMR) and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopies were utilized for the characterization of the monomer. This 3-functionalized thiophene monomer was polymerized in the presence of thiophene (Th) and pyrrole (Py) upon constant potential application in acetonitrile/tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBAFB). The result...
