Reactive Grafting of Glycidyl Methacrylate onto Poly (Ethylene-1-Octene)
Poly (ethylene-1-octene) (POE) was functionalized to varying degrees with glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) by melt grafting processes. Fourier transform infrared spectra (FT-IR) and 1H NMR spectra confirmed that glycidyl methacrylate was successfully grafted onto the POE. When dicumyl peroxide(DCP)concentration was around 4‰ high graft degree was obtained. The data from GPC measure demonstrates that POE chains degraded during grafting process.
