This article considers in detail the chemical reactions which occur in acrylonitrile polymers during 1 the low-temperature thermal below 150C, oxidative, and nucleophilic induced degradation that is so important to avoid in forming textile fibers 2 the destructive exotherm which occurs on rapid heating of these polymers 3 the controlled high-temperature conversion of these polymers to carbon fibers and 4 a brief consideration of ionizing radiation, photochemical, and mechanical degradations.
