The relative permittivity and dielectric strength have been determined for a bisphenol A polycarbonate (BPA-PC), in which a cyanoethyl group has been substituted for one of the geminal dimethyl groups. The new material (CN-PC) has a glass transition temperature that is 19 K higher than that for BPA-PC.

In addition, the dielectric strength of CN-PC, V/μm, is somewhat smaller than that for Cited by: Bisphenol A (BPA) What is BPA. Bisphenol A, more commonly known as BPA, is a chemical widely used to make polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins.

Blend Preparation. Both PTT and PC were dried at oC for 12 h and PTT powder and PC pellets were charged to the vessel used as a reactor for synthesis of PTT.

The blending temperature was oC and speed of agitation was 40 rev/min. Blending times were varied up to 90 min for some blends, however, all the blends were mixed at least for 30 min.

The kinetic aspects of the bisphenol‐A polycarbonate‐polyethylene terephthalate exchange reaction are studied.

Though the overall mechanism of transesterification is reversible, the kinetics can be treated from a more simple model of two consecutive reactions. In fact, debates and studies on this topic have therefore been intensive and the view of the thermodynamic origin of the UCST in PC/PMMA blends was later revised.

Legras and coworkers [10] and Rabenoy et al. [11] suggested that the UCST might be just an artifact that was a result of chemical reaction between PC and PMMA occurring at high. Commercial production of bisphenol A began in the ’s when large-scale uses for polycarbonate plastic and epoxy resins were developed.

The global consumption of bisphenol A in was estimated to be approximately 3 million metric tons (Source: Chemical File Size: 7KB. Reactive blending with cyclic anhydrides in the melt is a promising process to modify the chemical structure of bisphenol A polycarbonate (PC) by insertion of ester moieties leading to consistent changes in the chemical and physical properties of PC.

The monomer composing the bulky structure of the copolymers exhibited three characteristics: (1) a strong ring structure or nanoparticle to enhance the glass transition temperature (T g) of the PMMA copolymers [22,23,24,25,26]; (2) reduced moisture absorption because of the hydrophobic properties of the PMMA copolymer [27,28]; and (3) avoidance Cited by: Miscibility of blends of bisphenol-A-polycarbonate and poly(styrene-co- acrylonitrile-co-hydroxystyrene) terpolymerCited by: 5.
