- ... In this work, for the first time, redox initiation was employed in the melt free radical grafting of glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) and maleic anhydride (MA) onto polyethylene (PE) by reactive extrusion. Since it is very challenging to obtain high grafting degrees of GMA and MA onto polymer backbones through conventional free radical initiation, especially in the extrusion process, the strategy of us ...
