Thermal degradation of polymers and polymer blends

Polimerlerin ve polimer karışımlarının ısısal bozunması

Polymers and their blends undergo various thermal or radiation effects in areas of usage. Therefore, in the academic investigations and industrial applications, radiolysis and thermal degradation of polymers, polymer blends and mixed polymers is very important. In this study, recent studies on ther- mal degradation of heated and irradiated polymers and their blends being done by the second branch in left side of our polymer tree (Fig.1) are reviewed. The studies have been classified as preparation and investigation of graft copolymer structures with γ-rays, determination of gelation dose for γ-irradiated polymers, thermal degradation of γ-irradiated polymers, determination of thermal gelation points of polymers, comparison of various isothermal thermogravimetric methods and new compact method, and preparation and thermal degradation of maleic anhydride copolymers and terpolymers.
