Abstract

An interesting chemical modification reaction, epoxidation of conjugated double bond containing sequences (polyenes) formed by thermal degradation in poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) chains was attempted. The epoxidation of degraded PVCs was carried out with m-chloroperoxybenzoic acid (mCPBA) in different solutions under various conditions. It was found that this reaction in cyclohexanone leads only to low extent of epoxidation. Conversion of polyenes to polyepoxy sequences in the PVC chain was achieved by using tetrahydrofuran as the reaction medium. The resulting colorless PVCs with polyepoxy sequences are suitable for completely compatible secondary PVC stabilizers. Several subsequent useful reactions, such as curing, ring-opening etc., can also be carried out with the epoxy groups in these new modified polymers.
