Abstract

A new surface modification method to improve the graft polymerization of ε-caprolactone (CL) on MgO surface was developed. The MgO nanoparticles were first modified with ethylene glycol (EG), and then used for initiating graft polymerization of CL. The modified MgO nanoparticles were attested by fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, thermal gravimetric analysis and dispersion stability test. The results showed that EG was successfully grafted onto the MgO surface, the hydroxyl group of the grafted EG initiated the graft polymerization of CL onto the MgO surface in the presence of stannous octanoate. The PCL grafting amount (11.13%) on MgO modified with EG (MgO-EG) is much higher than that of unmodified MgO (3.95%). MgO-EG-PCL with 11.13 wt% of grafted PCL exhibited the most excellent dispersibility in chloroform. The MgO-EG-PCL/PCL composites exhibited the most significant improvement, tensile strength and the elongation at break of PCL increased from 15.64 to 19.58 MPa and from 272.34% to 420.73%, respectively.
