Influence of catalytic systems on the synthesis of (dis)entangled UHMWPE and its implications on mechanical properties
Research output: Thesis › Doctoral Thesis › External
Uniaxial solid-state deformation of UHMWPE samples of different molar masses have been evaluated and related with the entanglement state of the polymers synthesised. A clear relationship between some mechanical properties and the molar mass/entanglement density of the polymers synthesised has been found.
