Studies on Rheological Property and Miscibility of Lignosulfonate/Polystyrene Blends
Effects of amounts of lignosulfonate and additives and reaction temperature on thermoplastics of lignosulfonate/polystyrene blends were investigated by rheometer through measurement of maximal torque, balanced torque and plasticized time. Optimum experimental parameters for preparation of lignosulfonate/polystyrene blends with excellent thermoplastic properties were obtained. The results of SEM and IR revealed that miscibility of lignosulfonate/polystyrene blends was improved, favorable for development of degradable lignosulfonate-based materials.
