Crosslinking agents : analysis and quantification in a laboratory

A crosslink is an assembly of polymer chains through chemical bonds under the effect of crosslinking agents. Crosslinking is used to modify the physicochemical properties of the initial polymer.

Crosslinking agents used on polymers can affect the mechanical properties of said polymers.
