Coalescence Suppression in Flowing Polymer Blends Using Silica Rods with Different Surface Chemistries

Figures(7) / Tables(2)

  • Silica rods with homogeneous (hydrophilic or hydrophobic) and amphiphilic surface properties were synthesized and their efficiencies in suppressing the flow-induced droplet coalescence of immiscible polyisobutylene (PIB)/polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) blends were evaluated via in situ visualization technique. The flow-induced coalescence behavior of blends was found to strongly depend on the surface nature and concentration of silica rods added as well as the blend ratio. While a trace amount of rods promoted coalescence, all kinds of rods demonstrated a morphology refinement effect at high rod concentrations. Good compatibilization effects were obtained at high rod concentrations, especially for hydrophilic and amphiphilic rods. Based on confocal laser scanning microscopy results, these phenomena observed were interpreted reasonably in terms of the selective distribution and aggregation of silica rods, which were suggested to be decisive for the stabilization mechanism and efficiency of these rods.
