Abstract

original image

Cover: The cover illustrates SEM micrographs of LDPE/PET blends and those compatibilized with LDPE-EBAGMA (MB1) and PET-EBAGMA (MB2) masterbatches with the plausible chemical interactions at interface and DSC thermograms of LDPE/PET blends during cooling. LDPE/PET blends exhibit a better morphology with MB1 compared to LDPE/PET/MB2 coupled with a reduction in the crystallization phenomena of PET. Further details can be found in the article by A. Benhamida,* M. Kaci, S. Cimmino, C. Silvestre, and D. Duraccio on page 222.
