For the same G' values, the G" value for the blend containing the graft copolymer is lower than that of the blend containing polystyrene homopolymer.
From the values in Table 1, it can be concluded that replacing the polystyrene with PS-g-AA makes the blend stiffer (higher modulus).
The results obtained from the mechanical property analysis of the blends show that the introduction of polystyrene modified with acrylic acid in a N66/PS blend makes the blend stiffer and tougher but drastically decreases the break elongation of the blend.
This study has been a preliminary investigation on the feasibility of compatibilizing polyamide/polystyrene blends by the method of reactive compatibilization using polystyrene modified with acrylic acid.
The morphological studies showed that replacing polystyrene with PS-g-AA in binary blends containing nylon 6,6 resulted in a significant reduction of the domain sizes of the dispersed PS phase in the nylon 6,6 matrix.
