Notes: The aim of this third part is to analyze the structure and properties of the interfacial region between carbon fibers and PEEK as a function of different thermal conditioning treatments. First, it is shown by means of optical microscopy that the interfacial zone is not different from the bulk matrix when standard cooling conditions are used. On the contrary, a transcrystalline interphase is formed near the carbon fiber surface in systems that have been subjected to isothermal treatments. By comparison with previous results concerning the mechanical properties of the fiber-matrix interface, it appears that the interfacial shear strength decreases in the presence of a transcrystalline interphase or when the crystallization rate of PEEK increases. Moreover, it seems that the “constraint state” of the amorphous phase of PEEK near the fiber surface could also play a role in the interfacial shear strength. Secondly, a method is proposed in order to estimate the elastic modulus of crystalline interphases. It seems that this modulus is strongly dependent on the crystallization rate of the polymer. Finally, the determination of the stress-free temperature, defined as the temperature at which a longitudinal compressive stress just appears on the carbon fiber during the processing of the composites, is performed by recording the acoustic events corresponding to the fragmentation process in single-fiber composites. The results confirm that the crystallization rate and the “constraint state” of the amorphous phase of the matrix play an important role in the mechanical behavior of carbon fiber-PEEK interfaces.

Notes: Extensional tests at constant strain rate \documentclass{article}\pagestyle{empty}\begin{document}$\dot \varepsilon$\end{document} have been carried out on polystyrene melts with different molecular weight distributions at various temperatures and strain rates. The true tensile stress is found to be well approximated by the sum of two contributions: (1) a neo-Hookean expression involving the recoverable strain and (2) a contribution rapidly reaching a steady-state value. Two experimental parameters can be defined: an elasticity modulus \documentclass{article}\pagestyle{empty}\begin{document}$G(\dot \varepsilon )$\end{document} from (1) and a viscosity \documentclass{article}\pagestyle{empty}\begin{document}$\eta _{\rm v} (\dot \varepsilon )$\end{document} from (2). It is further shown that time-temperature equivalence applies not only to the stress but also to the recoverable strain and to G and ηv. The dependence of G and ηv on strain rate is then discussed. For high strain rates, G is close to the linear viscoelastic plateau modulus of PS melts and decreases with decreasing strain rate. The value of ηv is found to a good approximation to be equal to three times the shear viscosity taken at a shear rate equivalent to the elongational strain rate.

Notes: High quality packaging films from hydroxyethyl cellulose of low degree of substitution (DS) are being produced commercially in this country and abroad. Increasing demand for this and a variety of other applications requires a rapid and simple production control method for determining hydroxyethyl substitution of cellulose. None of the known analytical methods fulfills these requirements. The present paper describes a method which is based on the relationship between the solubility and the molar hydroxyethyl substitution of hydroxyethyl cellulose. A washed and dried sample of hydroxyethyl cellulose is dissolved in 7% aqueous sodium hydroxide. Methyl alcohol, a nonsolvent, is used to precipitate a fraction of the sample. The turbidity of the equilibrium system is determined and optical density readings are related to molar substitution. The method is most useful in low DS ranges of 2-8% EtO but is susceptile to broader application through adjustment of the composition of the solvent-nonsolvent mixture. Relatively large variations in DP can be tolerated. The molar substitution level of an hydroxyethyl cellulose sample can be obtained in 40 min. by this method, making it a practical production control technique.

Notes: The crystallite reorientation brought about by the swelling of cotton with sodium hydroxide solution (NaOH) has been investigated. The degree of reorientation as indicated by the decreased value of x-ray angle may arise from deconvoluting and not necessarily from a change in orientation of the crystallites within the fibrillar structure.

Notes: Cotton and cotton/polyester blends treated with phosphorus-nitrogen polymers and poly-(vinyl bromide) for flame retardance were examined in the electron microscope. A considerable amount of the poly(vinyl bromide) was retained by the cotton fibers. Expansion studies indicated that the poly(vinyl bromide) acted either as a morphologic adhesive or as a nonpolar matrix impervious to penetration by methacrylate before swelling.

Notes: The effect of temperature (100°C) and heating time (up to 384 hr) on the physicochemical properties of high molecular weight (M̄p ≅ 4 × 106) partly hydrolyzed (τ ≅ 31%) polyacrylamide (HPAM-25) solutions with initial pH values near 4 and 7, respectively, is reported. Potentiometric and spectroscopy data indicate that upon heating the solutions for 16 days the extent of hydrolysis is increased up to around 90%. The viscosity behavior, especially in the presence of bivalent salt (CaCl2), can be explained by taking such an increase in hydrolysis into consideration. From light scattering data, it is shown that the conformational changes are not correlated with molecular weight degradation.

Notes: Dynamic shear experiments in the linear range of deformation and extensional tests at constant strain rate have been carried out on a linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) melt and on two branched low-density polyethylene (LDPE) melts with different amounts of long-chain branching. Both the dynamic shear moduli and the tensile stress obey the time-temperature superposition principle. A simple model based on a nonaffine generalized Maxwell model with two relaxation times is proposed to describe the rheological behavior in elongation of these melts. Close agreement between the model and the experimental data can be obtained by adjusting the two relaxation times and the “slip parameter” of entanglements. The variations of these parameters with strain rate and their relationship with molecular structure are discussed.

Notes: The crystal lattice of native cellulose from four sources has been investigated by electron diffraction techniques. The four sources were: cotton, ramie, a bacterial cellulose (Acetobacter xylinum), and an algal cellulose (Valonia ventricosa). Evidence for the existence of at least two different unit cells is provided. There were no systematic absences of odd-order OkO reflections in any of the cellulose patterns, therefore, it was concluded that neither cellulose cell falls into the P21 space group.

Notes: Viscoelastic properties of styrene-co-methyl methacrylate random copolymers have been determined over a temperature range covering the glass transition, the rubbery plateau, and the terminal zone and compared with polystyrene and polymethyl methacrylate homopolymers. Nonlinear behavior was observed in the variations of most of the physical and rheological characteristics with the methyl methacrylate content in the copolymer. Results are interpreted in terms of the rupture of polar-polar intermolecular interactions between ester groups due to the presence of styrene units.

Notes: Polymer solvent interactions in the ternary system high molecular weight polystyrene (HMPS), low molecular weight polystyrene (LMPS), and dioctyl phthalate (DOP) have been characterized by means of intrinsic viscometry (IV), dynamic light scattering (DLS), and static light scattering (SLS). Excluded volume exponents have been extracted from the scaling of intrinsic viscosity and translational diffusivity with polymer molecular weight for a mixed solvent of 13 wt % LMPS/87 wt % DOP. The value of the excluded volume exponent, v = 0.45, indicates that HMPS in the mixed solvent DOP/LMPS has apparently assumed a reduced conformation relative to the theta condition. However, SLS measures of the second virial coefficient (A2) confirm that DOP is a theta solvent at our experimental temperature of 22°C and indicate that the addition of LMPS increases A2. SLS also suggests that neither solvent component is strongly preferentially adsorped into the HMPS coil. Our system then is a mixture of a theta solvent and a good solvent that exhibits poor solvent scaling behavior. We believe this to be the first demonstration of such behavior in a system that does not exhibit appreciable preferential adsorption. We conclude by examining our observations in the context of current descriptions of mixed solvent thermodynamics. © 1996 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
