Advances in stu­dies of thermal degradation of polymeric materials. Part I. Literature studies

Polimery 2019, No 4, 241


DOI: dx.doi.org/10.14314/polimery.2019.4.1

Summary

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.


Keywords: thermal analysis, polymer composites and nanocomposites, modified polymers, biopolymers
