POLYOLEFINS: Design and Synthesis of Olefin Copolymers with Tunable Amounts of Comonomers Bearing Stabilizing Functionalities
Maria Carmela Sacchi,* Simona Losio, Paola Stagnaro, Stefano Menichetti, Caterina Viglianisi
The present research proposes the design and synthesis of monomers bearing stabilizing functionalities and their copolymerization with ethylene to obtain non-releasing polymeric additives. Such materials can be added to commercial polyolefins to prepare films characterized by stability to auto- and photo-oxidation, with reduced, or eliminated risk, of migration of the stabilizer into the contact food.
