Title: An Efficient Post-Polymerization Modification of Poly(Styrene- co -Maleic Anhydride) for Thermally Reversible Nanocomposites

Abstract

A copolymer of maleic anhydride and styrene is functionalized with Diels–Alder (DA) capable pendant groups to enable the study of this material with different crosslink densities. This constituent is synthesized using commercially available starting materials and relatively simple and uncomplicated chemistries which open the possibility for its use in large-scale applications. The 10%, 25%, 50%, and 100% DA nominal crosslinking based on available pendant furan groups on the polymeric component is investigated. The reaction kinetics are monitored using infrared spectroscopy and rheology. Based on the rheological results, carbon nanotube (CNT) incorporation into the DA matrix is explored in order to determine its effects on the complex modulus of the material. This work done in this report is meant as a proof of concept for this DA material with the possibility of its incorporation into other commonly used bulk materials and/or adhesives to allow for an easily reversible product formulation.
