  • The solid-state morphology and liquid-state homogeneity of blends of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and low-density polyethylene (LDPE) were investigated by small-angle neutron and x-ray scattering (SANS and SAXS). The solid state morphology was investigated as a function of composition and cooling rate from the melt. After slow cooling, the evidence indicated that the mixtures were either completely (HDPE-rich blends) or almost completely (LDPE-rich blends) phase separated into separate HDPE and LDPE lamellae over the whole compositional range. In contrast, for rapidly quenched blends the components are extensively co-crystallized for all concentrations, though the SANS data indicated that the branched component hadmore » a tendency to be preferentially located in the inter-lamellar regions. In the liquid state, the blends were homogeneous at all compositions, showing that the solid state morphology is not determined by the melt structure, but is a function of the crystallization kinetics. Further evidence for blend homogeneity in the liquid is presented. In particular the authors examine the hypothesis that a phase separated mixture might give a scattering pattern similar to a homogeneous blend if the domain sizes were larger than the maximum spatial resolution of the SANS experiment (D > 2{pi}/Q{sub min} {approximately} 2,000 {angstrom}). In this scenario, the differential scattering cross section d{Sigma}/d{Omega}(Q) {approximately} Q{sup {minus}2}, though phase separation decreases the cross section in this Q-range with respect to the homogeneous blend. For HDPE/LDPE blends in the melt, this decrease in intensity was not observed, thus ruling out the possibility of phase separation.« less
  • X-ray reflectivity and interfacial tension measurements demonstrate that long-chain alkanol monolayers at the water-hexane interface exhibit a well defined chain disorder and partial hexane mixing into the monolayer, in contrast to alkanol monolayers at the water-vapor interface that consist of close-packed rigid rod molecules. At the water-hexane interface triacontanol molecules form a condensed phase with progressive disordering of the chain from the -CH{sub 2}OH to the -CH{sub 3} group. At this interface the density in the head-group region is 10 to 15% greater than bulk water, an effect not seen for the ordered monolayer at the water-vapor interface. Monolayers ofmore » shorter length alkanols (consisting of 20, 22, and 24 carbons) and variations with temperature are also discussed.« less
