Evidence has been obtained concerning rate effects in the radiation-induced grafting of vinyl monomers on polymeric films resulting from plasticization of the film by the grafting solution, the plasticizing efficiency of the solution being indicated by its Hildebrand solubility parameter. The grafting mechanisms are elucidated by the construction of three-component phase diagrams for the polymersolvent 1solvent 2 grafting systems, using equations based on the Flory-Huggins theory of polymersolvent interaction.
