Journal of Polymer Research (J Polymer Res)
Asian Pacific Journal devoted to all Aspects of Polymer Science. Journal of Polymer Research provides a forum for the prompt publication of articles concerning the fundamental and applied research of polymers. Its great feature lies in the diversity of content which it encompasses, drawing together results from all aspects of polymer science and technology. As polymer research is rapidly growing around the globe, the aim of this journal is to establish itself as a significant information tool not only for the international polymer researchers in academia but also for those working in industry. The scope of the journal covers a wide range of the highly interdisciplinary field of polymer science and technology, including: polymer synthesis; polymer reactions; polymerization kinetics; polymer physics;morphology; structure-property relationships; polymer analysis and characterization; physical and mechanical properties; electrical and optical properties; polymer processing and rheology; application of polymers; supramolecular science of polymers; polymer composites.

Article: Influences of surfactant content and type on physical properties of natural rubber/organoclay nanocomposites[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Montmorillonite clay (MMT) was modified by octadecylamine (ODA) or octadecyltrimethyl ammonium bromide (ODTMA) surfactants. The surfactant contents were varied, i.e. 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0 times the cation exchange capacity (CEC) of the MMT. The intercalation of surfactant molecules into MMT layers was confirmed by the increase in interlayer spacing of the modified MMT, the appearance of C-H stretching bands of alkyl ammonium surfactants and the increase in decomposition temperatures of the intercalated surfactant. With increasing surfactant content, the excess amounts of surfactant which had low interaction with MMT surface increased. The MMT-ODA and MMT-ODTMA were used as reinforcing fillers for natural rubber (NR). Effects of surfactant content and type on cure characteristics, tensile and morphological properties of NR nanocomposites were determined. NR nanocomposites containing 5 phr of the organoclays were prepared by a two-roll mill. With increasing surfactant content, morphologies of the NR nanocomposites revealed the exfoliated structure and the good dispersion of the organoclay in the NR matrix. These caused the enhancement of tensile properties of the NR nanocomposites. Among all the nanocomposites, NR/MMT-ODA2 had the highest tensile strength and provided optimum scorch time and cure time.Journal of Polymer Research 06/2012;
Article: Blends of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) and polydimethyl siloxane rubber (PDMS), part-I: assessment of compatibility from torque rheometry and mechanical properties[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) and polydi-methyl siloxane rubber (PDMS) are two major polymers used extensively for biomedical applications. Blending of these polymers combines the superior mechanical proper-ties, abrasion resistance, solvent resistance and aging resis-tance of TPU with chemical stability, inertness, flexibility and biocompatibility of PDMS. In the present investigation, an 80:20 blend of TPU and PDMS was selected for the preparation of an in situ compatibilized blend using ethylene methyl acrylate copolymer (EMA) as the compatibilizer. Effect of EMA on blends of ester type and ether type TPU with PDMS was studied. From the results obtained from torque rheometry, mechanical property evaluation, fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), atomic force mi-croscopy (AFM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM), it was concluded that 5 wt% of compatibilizer effectively compatibilized an 80:20 blend of ester type TPU and PDMS, whereas similar blend of ether type TPU required only 2 wt% compatibilizer.Journal of Polymer Research 05/2012; 19(5):1-13.

Article: Use of a novel initiator for synthesis of amino-end functionalized polystyrene (NH2-PS) by atom transfer radical polymerization[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Here we report a versatile new method for endfunctionalizing polystyrene. In order to produce polystyrene with an amino end group, 2-(3-bromo-3-phenylpropyl) isoindoline-1,3-dione was synthesized and used as a novel initiator for ATRP. After ATRP polymerization, tri-n-butyltin hydride ((n-Bu)3SnH) reductively replace existing halogens on polymer chains by hydrogen. Finally, the phthaloyl groups on polymer backbone were cleaved by treatment with hydrazine yielding amino terminated polystyrene. A polymer with Mn≈10,350 and Mw/Mn01.17 was obtained. Therefore, this method allows the preparation of amino end functionalized polystyrene of narrow polydispersity with complete degree of functionalization.Journal of Polymer Research 01/2012; 19:9752.
