AA-MMA Prepolymer Grafted LLDPE as Compatibilizer for Starch-PE Blends
Through the graft copolymerization of LLDPE and the AA-MMA prepolymer by reactive extrusion on the single-screw extruder, the LLPE-g-AA-MMA was prepared and used as compatibilizer for starch/PE blends, and then the compatibilization effect was investigated. The results exhibited that the addition of this compatibilizer substantially improved the mechanical properties, especially the tensile strength. Scanning electron micrographs of the blend specimens also supported the above observations.
