Wu, Pan and Li of Nanyang Technological University, China, prepared highly electrically conductive polypropylene (PP) composites by melt mixing using tin–lead (Sn-Pb) alloy as conducting fillers.  Two Sn-Pb alloys, Sn-Pb (20/80) and Sn-Pb (40/60), were used for comparison.  Sn-Pb loading and molding temperature affected electrical conductivity of the final Sn-Pb/PP composite.  The molding temperature controlled the formation of long-range conducting paths.  (RDC 6/16/2011)

 Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research 50 #12 (2011)

Zhai, Park and Kontopoulou , China and Japan, selected  a PP heterophasic copolymer with a linear structure was selected together with nanosilica to challenge the fabrication of PP foam with uniform cell structure, high cell density, and a high expansion ratio using CO2 as a physical blowing agent.  Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) observation indicated that silica particles tended to aggregate in the PP matrix, but the multisilica aggregates with sizes from 80 to 350 nm were well dispersed in PP because of the addition of a coupling agent (CA).  PP foam exhibited poor cell morphology and low cell densities of ca. 104–5 cells/cm3 at different die temperatures. An introduction of a small amount of nanosilica, 0.5 wt % and 1 wt %, dramatically improved the foaming behavior of PP, where the cell structure distribution of the resultant foams was uniform, and the cell density and foam expansion were high (i.e., 108–9 cells/cm3 and 16.9–19.5, respectively).  (RDC 6/14/2011)

Preparation of microcellular polypropylene/polystyrene blend foams with tunable cell structure
(822–829)
Polymers for Advanced Technologies 22 #6 (2011)

Huang and Xu South China University of Technology, China, completed microcellular foaming using supercritical carbon dioxide (sc-CO2) as the physical foaming agent in a batch process from a wide range of immiscible polypropylene/polystyrene (PP/PS) blends with 10–70wt% PS.  It was demonstrated that all PP/PS blends exhibit much dramatically improved foamability than the PP, and significantly decreased cell size and obviously increased cell density than the PS.  Moreover, the cell structure can be tunable via changing the blend composition.  Foamed PP/PS blends with up to 30wt% PS exhibit a closed-cell structure. Among them, foamed PP/PS 90:10 and 80:20 blends have very small mean cell diameter (0.4 and 0.7΅m) and high cell density (8.3Χ1011 and 6.4Χ1011cells/cm3). Both of blends exhibit nonuniform cell structure, in which most of small cells spread as “a string of beads.” Foamed PP/PS 70:30 blend shows the most uniform cell structure. Increase in the PS content to 50wt% and especially 70wt% transforms it to an irregular open-cell structure. The cell structure of foamed PP/PS blends is strongly related to the blend phase morphology and the solubility of CO2 in PP more than that in PS, which makes the PP serve as a CO2 reservoir.  (RDC 6/9/2011)
