Abstract

Surface modification of macromolecules renders a progressive and favorable method to enhance the properties of polymeric materials and improves conductivity, wettability, stability, adhesion, antibacterial properties, etc. of polymeric surfaces without deterioration of the polymer bulk properties. Polyolefins such as polyethylene and polypropylene were grafted with maleic anhydride(MAH) as a functional monomer in solution. Evidence for grafting was shown with FTIR measurement. The grafting ratio was determined from chemical titration. The higher MAH loading, the lower contact angle(${\theta}$) was obtained. With the increasing content of MAH, melting temperature($T_m$) of maleic anhydride grafted polymer decreased while decomposition temperature($T_d$) of maleic anhydride grafted polymer increased.
