Abstract

Reactions in the melt between polystyrene and ethylene propylene co- and terpolymers were studied in the presence of anhydrous AlCl3 using the mixing chamber of a Brabender Plastograph as the reactor. Various concurrent reactions have been identified, i.e., grafting, degradation, crosslinking, etc., the rates of which depend on the nature of the polymers and of the AlCl3 added. Grafting is extensive, 40-50%, and the composition of the grafts is close to that of the charge.
