Abstract:

When polyvinyl chloride is subjected to relatively high doses of irradiation one observes intermolecular interaction with splitting off of HCl cross-linking of the polymer and also the process of intramolecular splitting of HCl with the formation of a CC-bond. Because the chlorinated PVC resin used is the product of chlorination of PVC, the authors investigated infrared spectroscopy as a means to clarify the mechanism by which styrene and vinyl acetate are grafted to it under relatively small doses of irradiation.
