The effect of first-stage polymer Tg on the morphology and thermomechanical properties of structured polymer latex particles
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
A series of heterogeneous latexes having stage ratios of 40:60 between the first and second stage polymers were prepared by emulsion polymerization. The first-stage polymers were non-polar S-BuA with Tgs ranging from + 100 °C to + 20 °C and the second stage polymer was polar MMA–BuA–MAA having a Tg of 20 °C. The latex particle morphologies were studied using TEM and the thermomechanical properties of the resulting latex films were studied with DSC and DMA. Calculated diffusion rates for propagating species during the reactions were correlated to the observed morphologies and to the amount of interphase in the latex particles.
