Figure 3

The schematic illustrates the functionalization of PLimC with B3MP to give PLimC-B3MP, that is, a PLimC rubber. The Young’s moduli of various engineering plastics, commodities (both yellow region) and rubbers (red region) are plotted against their tensile strength. The materials PLimC and PLimC rubber are highlighted as green circles, showing the dramatic change of mechanical properties on functionalization of pure PLimC with B3MP.
