Ionomer morphology probed by small-angle scattering

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Ionomers, polymers containing a small amount of covalently-bound metal salt groups, are distinguished in the bulk state by spontaneous aggregation of these ionic groups to produce a microphase-separated material with a characteristic size scale of order 10 nm. Because of the small scale of heterogeneity and typical lack of long-range order, ionomer morphology is generally probed by small-angle scattering of nanometer-wavelength radiation. Insights from two such techniques are presented.
