But a literature survey reveals that no paper has been reported in the case of methacrylonitrile (MAN) grafting onto this industrial polysaccharide.
These radicals are responsible for the initiation of methacrylonitrile grafting onto polysaccharide backbone.
Hydrogenated carboxylated nitrile butadiene robber (HXNBR) is formed by polymerizing a conjugated diene such as 1,3-butadiene, a nitrile such as acrylonitrile or methacrylonitrile and an unsaturated carboxylic acid such as acrylic or methacrylic acid to produce a polymer with a C=C backbone and a random or statistical monomer distribution.
Methacrylonitrile is used as an alternative or replacement for acrylonitrile in some of the same applications.
The glass transition temperatures of the PVC/MSMAN blends are listed in Table 2 as a function of blend composition and methacrylonitrile (MAN) content in MSMAN.
For example, grafting polybutadiene, PB, with methacrylonitrile and styrene led to a modified version, MABS, advantageous when blended with PVC (40).
