Project at a Glance Contents on the CD ROM
  • Theoretically, there are three structural forms of polystyrene that can be prepared from
    styrene monomer: atactic (phenyl rings randomly oriented about the polymer chain), syndiotactic (phenyl rings on alternating sides about the polymer chain), and isotactic (phenyl rings all on one side of the polymer chain.
  • Syndiotactic polystyrene (SPS) is a new form of polystyrene polymer first synthesized in
    1985 according to the claims of Idemitsu.
  • The material is particularly interesting in that it offers the potential of overcoming one of amorphous polystyrene's primary deficiencies - a low heat distortion temperature. SPS had been expected to be crystalline in nature, due to its highly regular structure.
  • Tests performed on the polymer have indicated that this is in fact true. The high degree of crystallinity gives the polymer an important feature - a melting point of 270 oC, which is in the range of commonly used engineering polymers such as nylon or polyacetal.
  • Syndiotactic polystyrene is made by metallocene catalysis polymerization.
  • Syndiotactic polystyrene has been prepared by solution blending by mixing pure s-PS and organophilic clay with adsorbed cetyl pyridium chloride in dichlorobenzene.
  • As of early-1994, syndiotactic polystyrene (sPS) has been produced only in precommercial quantities. Start-up of a
    commercial plant is expected in 1994-1995.
  • The properties of sPS are very interesting from a practical point of view since, due to its low viscosity: this polymer can flow in long thin sections with low-pressure drops.
  • This feature is of fundamental importance for processing like injection molding.
  • Syndiotactic Polystyrene (sPS) was chosen as model material because of its very interesting properties from both technological and theoretical point of view.
  • The sPS possesses a high melting point (270C), a high glass transition temperature (100C), good temperature and chemical resistance.
  • The low moisture absorption, the good dimensional stability and an improved mechanical strength
    are significant characteristic of this relatively new polymer.
  • The effect of pressure on shear viscosity for the sPS was evaluated by rheological
    measurements. An apparatus was designed, built and employed with the aim of obtaining polymer
    viscosity under pressure. The effect of pressure on sPS was found to be very high.
