In this work, the thermal degradation characteristics of polyamide 6 (PA6) containing melamine (Me) and a boron-containing additive, borophosphate (BPO4), zinc borate (ZnB) or a boron and silicon-containing oligomer (BSi) are investigated systematically via direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry. In the presence of boron compounds, not only the release of melamine and its degradation products but also thermal characteristics of PA6 are affected significantly and the interactions between melamine and PA6 are enhanced. For the composite involving BPO4, sublimation of melamine and degradation of PA6 are slightly shifted to high temperatures. Whereas, for the composites involving ZnB and BSi, sublimation of melamine is depressed due to the glassy surface formed by ZnB and BSi and release of thermal degradation products of PA6 are shifted to lower temperatures noticeably. The glassy surface generated by ZnB allows the release of degradation products of melamine to a certain extent. Conversely, for the composite involving BSi, reduction in the yields of degradation products of melamine is also noted. The trap of degradation products of melamine in the polymer matrix causes significant decrease in the the temperature region where thermal degradation products of PA6 are recorded. POLYM.

Direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry studies on thermal degradation characteristics of poly(phenylene vinylene) with well-defined PSt side chains
Nur, Y.; Çolak, Demet; Cianga, I.; Yagci, Y.; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2008-10-01)
Thermal degradation characteristics of a new macromonomer polystyrene with central 4,4'-dicarbaldehyde terphenyl moieties and poly(phenylene vinylene) with well-defined polystyrene (PPV/PSt) as lateral substituents were investigated via direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry. A slight increase in thermal stability of PSt was detected for (PPV/PSt) and attributed to higher thermal stability of PPV backbone. It was almost impossible to differentiate products due to the decomposition of PPV backbone from those pro...

Poly(2‐(3‐butenyl)‐2‐oxazoline)s (PBOX) with glucose‐S‐butyl (Glc) and perfluoroalkyl‐S‐butyl (F) side chains (three samples: Glc/F = 100/0, 0/100, and 88/12) are synthesized by ring‐opening polymerization of 2‐butenyl‐2‐oxazoline and thiol‐ene click photochemistry, and their thermal properties are analyzed by direct‐pyrolysis mass spectrometry. Significant changes in the thermal stability and thermal‐degradation products are observed depending on the structure of the side chain. The thermal degradation of ...

In this work, the effects of addition of boron compounds, boron phosphate (BPO4), zinc borate (ZnB), borosilicate (BSi) and lanthanum borate (LaB), on thermal degradation characteristics of composites of polyamide 6 (PA6) and polypropylene (PP) are analyzed via Direct Pyrolysis Mass Spectrometry (DP-MS) technique. The composites of PA6 involve nitrogen containing flame retardants, melamine (Me) or melamine cyanurate (MC); or phosphorus containing flame retardant, aluminum diethylphosphinate (AlPi), with or ...
Thermal degradation of poly(propylene oxide) and polyepichlorohydrin by direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry
Uyar, T; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2002-09-01)
The thermal degradation of poly(propylene oxide), (PPO) and polyepichlorohydrin, (PECH) were studied with the use of direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry. The effects of heating rate and dissociative ionization on fragmentation pattern have also been investigated. It has been determined that PPO degrades via a random cleavage mechanism, the labile C-O bond scissions being preferred, An analogous degradation mechanism can be proposed for PECH. Yet, the elimination of side chains, evolution of HCl and the loss ...
Thermal degradation of poly(isobornyl acrylate) and its copolymer with poly(methyl methacrylate) via pyrolysis mass spectrometry
Ozlem, Suriye; Aslan-Guerel, Evren; Rossi, Rene M.; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2013-03-01)
In this work, the thermal degradation characteristics of poly(isobornyl acrylate) (PIBA), and its copolymer with PMMA, P(MMA-co-IBA) were investigated via direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry. Thermal degradation behavior of poly(isobornyl methacrylate) (PIBMA) was also studied for a better understanding of thermal degradation mechanism of PIBA. For both PIBA and PIBMA, gamma-H transfer from the isobornyl ring to the carbonyl group was predominantly effective in thermal degradation. As a consequence of evolut...
