Title: Molecular composites via ionic interactions and their deformation/fracture properties

Abstract

Homogeneous molecular composites have been made from ionic PPTA and PVP, in which a good dispersion of rod molecules is achieved via ion-dipole interactions. Appearance of a single T{sub g} as well as morphological observations by TEM have indicated good dispersion of the rigid-rod PPTA molecules. The deformation mode of the matrix polymer is modified significantly with the addition of rod molecules: while crazing is the only deformation mechanism of PVP, an addition of ionic PPTA molecules into the PVP matrix induces shear deformation. This suggests better fracture properties of these molecular composites. Initial studies have indicated significant enhancement in mechanical properties.
