Abstract

The high throughput mindset has been our approach to rapidly synthesize, characterize, and analyze additive filled polymers. For example, rather than taking a week to extrude polystyrene strands with 0% to 10% integer amounts of organically modified clay (om-clay), measuring the om-clay content, and measuring the modulus of the polymer nanocomposites, we obtained the same results in less than 2 days! This manuscript and presentation will be an overview of our current high throughput synthesis, characterization, and analysis methods, which include gradient extrusion and in-line extruder sensors.
