In crosslinked rubber such as a tire rubber, the loose polymer chain ends from the crosslinked network are major sources of hysteretic losses, shortening the elastomer's lifetime.
2004), it was reported that the crosslinked [beta]-CD made with adipic acid exhibited higher cholesterol removal than [beta]-CD in milk, it was also reported that the [beta]-CD removed over 90% of cholesterol from egg yolk diluted with water (1:1) and that the [beta]-CD could be recovered and recycled for further use (Jung et al.
Although previous crosslinking techniques have been available in plasticization, gas permeability largely decreases because of the densification of crosslinked membranes attributed to a higher crosslink density.
Crosslinked nylons have higher heat resistance than their standard counterparts, along with better physical properties and abrasion resistance.
