Abstract: 

Functionalization of polyethylene has been performed by means of homogeneous grafting reactions of maleic anhydride initiated by free radicals. Benzoyl peroxide, azobisisobutyronitrile, and dicumylperoxide have been used as free radical sources and their efficiency has been compared. The influences of the solvent, time and temperature of the reaction, and concentration of monomer on the percentage of grafting have been investigated. A comparison of the effectiveness of the nature of initiator, solvent, atmosphere and monomer concentration showed that polyethylene macroradicals are formed mainly through the chain transfer reactions. This mechanism of reaction was also confirmed by the influence of the nature of polymer and monomer concentration. Side groups of maleic anhydride and side chains of poly(maleic anhydride) are formed by addition of polyethylene macroradicals to the double bond of maleic anhydride molecule and by a combination of polyethylene macroradicals with those of poly(maleic nhydride).
