Roles of chain length, chain architecture, and time in the initiation of visible crazes in polystyrene

Abstract:

Visible craze initiation stress has been measured for a wide range of linear and branched monodisperse polystyrenes (PS) soaked in diethylene glycol. Results show that, for a given time under stress, craze initiation in linear PS is disentanglement-dominated below a critical molar mass and chain scission-dominated above it. Branched monodisperse PS behaves similarly, with the relevant molar mass in this case being the span molar mass. Disentanglement craze initiation stress is found to vary l...
