immediately forms a thin film of polymer at the interface. This film prevents further reaction by acting as a physical barrier to monomer mixing. By pulling the film out of the interface, new interface is exposed and the new film forms continuously at the interface. The stoichiometry of interface is 1:1 (A:B) in this diffusion controlled situation[4]. The product obtained is in white fiber form which is also very brittle. Figure 4. DSC results for Nylon 6,10 Figure 4showed that our nylon sample has 105.3 C of Tg, 160 C of Crystallization and 246.15 C of melting point. The giant peak at 128.96 C might due to the vaporization of moisture inside the sample.
Figure 5. TGA result for nylon 6,10 Figure 5shows the TGA results generated on nylon 6,10 polymer. The plot shows the percent mass as a function of sample temperature for the nylon 6,10 polymer under a nitrogen purge. Approximately 10 mg of sample was heated at a rate of 20 C/min with the PerkinElmer TGA. Nylon polymers absorb a small amount of ambient moisture and TGA can be used to determine this level of water. At about 100 C, the nylon polymer starts to evolve the loss of moisture, which is found to be 47% by TGA. Although the sample was dried more than 2 days in the air, there are 47 % of the sample was moisture. This might due to the hydrogen bond which capable of holding water molecules in the polymer. The TGA results show that the nylon 6,10 polymer undergoes several thermal degradation beginning at 300 C and with a total mass loss of 98.0%. There is a small amount of inert residue remaining (1.497%). Interfacial polymerization has many advantages over melt polycondensation (bulk process). In interfacial polymerization, reaction proceeds at the interface of two immiscible phases. Polymerization rate is controlled by the rate of diffusion of reactants to the interface. In
contrast to melt polycondensation, interfacial process has fast kinetics thus produces high
