Abstract

A mathematical model is presented for the thermal degradation of monosubstituted vinyl copolymers. The model is based on a relatively simple radical mechanism, proved valid for several polymers including polypropylene, poly(methyl acrylate) and polystyrene. The aim of the modelling is to obtain information about the sequence distribution of the copolymers and about the reactions during decomposition. The theoretical and experimental product distributions can be compared using the method of least squares.
