Abstract:

The immediate objective was to determine the rates, products, and mechanisms of the peroxide-initiated oxidations of atactic polypropylene at 25- 55C, where the primary products are stable. These results provide an improved foundation for studies of photoinitiated and thermally initiated oxidations. The peroxide used was di-t-butylperoxy oxalate DBPO.
