When the extruder reaches a steady state with regard to the flow rate, pressure and temperature conditions, a sample of the tracer (consisting in a quantity of 300 mg and 1 g of powder, respectively, for the free anthracene and the grafted anthracene polystyrene) was added manually into the feed stream.
25 g of pure anthracene was introduced as a pulse through the hopper placed on feeder 1, and specimens were taken at constant intervals from the exit die.
