Abstract:

Superpressure compression studies were conducted on polymers, monomers, and organic compounds, including different generic materials and several types of the same generic material. Studies have included polyethylenes, polyamides, styrene, polystyrene, methylmethacrylate, polymethylmethacrylate, polyunsaturated materials, and nonconventional monomers under compressions up to 100,000 atmospheres. The majority of compressions were conducted at ambient temperatures, although several heated runs were made during the preliminary and final phases of this study. Certain aluminosiloxanes were polymerized by pressure and heat. Pressure stabilized Al-O-C arsenosiloxane pentavalent arsenic and Si-C bonds.
