Abstract: Graft copolymerization of a series of alkyl acrylates and alkyl methacrylates
onto polyethylene of Polish production was investigated, using benzoyl peroxide as initiator as well as the preirradiation technique, namely ionizing
radiation from a 60Co γ-source. The effect of α-carbon methyl substituent of
methacrylates as well as the influence of the length of alkyl chains in the esters
groups of both series of monomers onto the grafting process was observed.
Both the ungrafted and some of the grafted polyethylene film obtained were
studied by infrared spectrophotometry.
