Advances in studies of thermal degradation of polymeric materials. Part I. Literature studies
Polimery 2019, No 4, 241
The article presents current trends in the studies of thermal stability of polymers, with particular emphasis on novel polymeric systems: composites and nanocomposites, biodegradable and biocidal materialsas well as polymers for special applications. The general mechanism of thermal degradation occurring during polymer processing and the basic kinetic aspects of this process are briefly described. Exemplary studies of thermal properties of selected plastics based on polyurethanes, epoxy resins, copolymers of acrylic acid and polyesters are also discussed.
