Crystallisation regimes and reptation in isotactic polypropylene molecular weight fractions (1999)
Journal Article
Ibhadon, A. (1999). Crystallisation regimes and reptation in isotactic polypropylene molecular weight fractions. Journal of Applied Polymer Science, 71(4), 579 - 584. https://doi.org/10.1002...AID-APP9%3E3.0.CO%3B2-6

Crystal growth rate data based on the kinetic nucleation theory of chain folding and the effect of reptation, have been used to predict the rate of crystal growth at moderate to high supercoolings in iPP molecular weight fractions. Growth rate data o... Read More

Fracture mechanics of polypropylene: effect of molecular characteristics, crystallisation conditions, and annealing on morphology and impact performance (1998)
Journal Article

Fracture mechanics study of polypropylene samples of various molecular weight, obtained under different crystallizations conditions, is reported. Fracture toughness values obtained at high speed of impact as well as at low temperatures increased with... Read More

Physical aging in isotadic polypropylene (1996)
Journal Article
Ibhadon, A. (1996). Physical aging in isotadic polypropylene. Journal of Applied Polymer Science, 62(11), 1843 - 1846. https://doi.org/10.1002...AID-APP8%3E3.0.CO%3B2-Q

Physical aging studies were made using commercial and laboratory samples of isotactic polypropylene. Linear and nonlinear viscoelastic responses were measured after quenching the glass from above the glass transition temperatures to below the glass t... Read More

Separation of chromium ions through supported liquid membranes and membrane reactors (1994)
Journal Article
Scott, K., & Ibhadon, A. (1994). Separation of chromium ions through supported liquid membranes and membrane reactors. Developments in chemical engineering and mineral processing, 2(4), 195-201. doi:10.1002/apj.5500020402

The use of supported liquid membranes (SLM) for the selective separation of chromium ions from aqueous solutions is described. Flat‐sheet microporous polypropylene membranes loaded with Aliquat 336 in o‐xylene are used. The use of liquid membranes in... Read More
