Abstract:

It was the major object of the program to learn the conditions necessary for radical decomposition with special emphasis on depropagation in polymer forming systems, depropagation being measured by cistrans isomerization of isotopically labeled monomers. This objective was achieved for styrene and vinyl chloride. Concomitant with these studies, many areas dealing with reversibility of simpler radical-olefin additions and rearrangements were examined with considerable profit. Author
