Abstract

A simple and versatile method of in situ polymerization of macrocyclic carbonates in the presence of a maleic anhydride polypropylene (mPP) matrix to yield a nanostructured polymer blend consisting of polycarbonate (PC) minor phase, a polypropylene major phase, and a surface-active compatibilizer (i.e. PC grafted onto mPP polypropylene backbone) has been reported. The current method showed that PC can be dispersed in a nanostructure of an average diameter of 150 nm. The crystallization behavior of the mPP in the blend was strongly accelerated unexpectedly by the in situ polymerization/compatibilization reaction.
