    We show that non-entangled polymers display an elastic-like behaviour at a macroscopic scale (probed at some 0.100 mm thickness) up to at least hundred degrees above the glass transition temperature. This observation, found under non-slippage conditions, both for side-chain liquid crystalline...

    N-p-Cyano-phenyl maleimide PCPMI was prepared and copolymerized with ethyl and butyl methacrylate in order to study the effect of introducing a strong dipole along the polymer backbone. The copolymer composition was determined by elemental analysis and 1H NMR spectroscopy. The molecular mass of...

    The properties of filled polymers depend on the properties of the matrix and the filler, the concentration of the components and their interactions.

    We observed the formation of regular nanoscale undulations on a polystyrene film when imprinted by a soft poly(dimethylsiloxane) mold above the polymer’s glass transition temperature. The shape of the wave was reminiscent of a buckling wave frequently observed for a metal film supported...
