Abstract

We reported earlier on grafting hexafluoroisopropanol groups onto polyethylene through the reaction of polyethylene with hexafluoroacetone and di-t-butyl peroxide. The modified polyethylene was partially crosslinked. In this work, we adapted the Charlesby–Pinner Equation to estimate the ratio of chain scission to crosslinking in the reaction.
