In this study, commercially available epoxidized and maleated olefinic copolymers, EMA-GMA (ethylene-methyl acrylate-glycidyl methacrylate) and EnBACO-MAH (ethylene-n butyl acrylate-carbon monoxide-maleic anhydride), were used at 0, 5, and 10% by weight to compatibilize the blend composed of ABS (acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene) terpolymer and PA6 (polyamide 6). Compatibilizing performance of these two olefinic polymers was investigated from blend morphologies, thermal and mechanical properties as a function of blend composition, and compatibilizer loading level. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) studies showed that incorporation of compatibilizer resulted in a fine morphology with reduced dispersed particle diameter at the presence of 5% compatibilizer. The crystallization behavior of PA6 phase in the blends was explored for selected blend compositions by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). At high compatibilizer level a decrease in the degree of crystallization was observed. In 10% compatibilizer containing blends, formation of gamma-crystals was observed contrary to other compatibilizer compositions. The behavior of the compatibilized blend system in tensile testing showed the negative effect of using excess compatibilizer. Different trends in yield strengths and strain at break values were observed depending on compatibilizer type, loading level, and blend composition. With 5% EnBACO-MAH, the blend toughness was observed to be the highest at room temperature. (c) 2007 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.


Effect of Gas Permeation Temperature and Annealing Procedure on the Performance of Binary and Ternary Mixed Matrix Membranes of Polyethersulfone, SAPO-34, and 2-Hydroxy 5-Methyl Aniline
Oral, Edibe Eda; Yılmaz, Levent; Kalıpçılar, Halil (Wiley, 2014-09-05)
This study investigated the effect of annealing time and temperature on gas separation performance of mixed matrix membranes (MMMs) prepared from polyethersulfone (PES), SAPO-34, and 2-hydroxy 5-methyl aniline (HMA). A postannealing period at 120 degrees C for a week extensively increased the reproducibility and stability of MMMs, but for pure PES membranes no postannealing was necessary for stable and reproducible performance. The effect of operation temperature was also investigated. The permeabilities of...
Kinetics of polyurethane formation between glycidyl azide polymer and a triisocyanate
Keskin, S; Özkar, Saim (Wiley, 2001-07-25)
Kinetics of the polyurethane formation between glycidyl azide polymer (GAP) and a polyisocyanate, Desmodur N-100, were studied in the bulk state by using quantitative FTIR spectroscopy. The reaction was followed by monitoring the change in intensity of the absorption band at 2270 cm-l for NCO stretching in the IR spectrum, and was shown to obey second-order kinetics up to 50% conversion. The activation parameters were obtained from the evaluation of kinetic data at different temperatures in the range of 50-...
Effect of surface treatment on electrical conductivity of carbon black filled conductive polymer composites
Koysuren, Ozcan; Yesil, Sertan; Bayram, Göknur (Wiley, 2007-06-05)
Two different types of surface modifiers, 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane and formamide, were applied to carbon black (CB) particles to lower electrical resistivity of polymer composites prepared by treated CB. Two different matrices, low-density polyethylene and nylon 6, were chosen to compound with surface modified CB. Surface energy of CB was increased by adding amine or amide functional groups during surface treatment of CB. According to electron spectroscopy for chemical analysis (ESCA), chemical modifica...
Effect of preparation parameters on performance of dense homogeneous polycarbonate gas separation membranes
Hacarlioglu, P; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Yılmaz, Levent (Wiley, 2003-10-17)
The aim of this study is to determine the effect of preparation parameters on the membrane permeation mechanism and separation performances of dense homogeneous poly(bisphenol A carbonate) (PC) membranes. Blade-casting and drop-casting techniques are used for casting films from solutions with varying concentrations. Chloroform and methylene chloride are used to determine the effect of the properties of the casting solvent. Permeation measurements are done with Ar, N-2, O-2, CH4, CO2, and H, gases. The selec...
Effects of micro-nano titania contents and maleic anhydride compatibilization on the mechanical performance of polylactide
CAN, ULAŞ; Kaynak, Cevdet (Wiley, 2020-02-01)
The first aim of this study was to compare influences of various contents of the micro- (200 nm) and nano (50 nm)-sized titania (TiO2) particles especially on the mechanical performance of the polylactide (PLA) biopolymer. Micro- and nano-composites were prepared by twin-screw extruder melt mixing, while the specimens were shaped by compression molding. Scanning electron microscope analyses and mechanical tests revealed that due to the most efficient uniform distribution in the matrix, the best improvements...
