Thermal degradation behaviors of phenol and benzoxazine end-capped polysulfone macromonomers (PSU-OH and PSU-P-a) and pre-cured PSU-P-a in the absence and presence of aniline and phenol based benzoxazine monomer (P-a) were investigated via pyrolysis mass spectrometry. A significant increase in thermal stability of both polysulfone and polybenzoxazine chains upon polymerization of benzoxazine end groups was determined compared to phenol-ended polysulfones and aniline based monofunctional polybenzoxazine. Thermal stability of both chain segments depends on concentration of benzoxazine monomer and the chain length of the polysulfone chain

Thermal degradation of polysiloxane and polyetherester containing benzoxazine moieties in the main chain

In this study investigation of thermal characteristics of polysiloxane and polyetherester containing benzoxazine moieties in the main chain was performed via pyrolysis mass spectrometry. Pyrolysis mass spectrometry analyses revealed that the thermal stability and the extent of cross-linking enhanced when the benzoxazine moieties were separated by thermally more stable units such as siloxanes. However, when the siloxane chain units were long, possibility of polybenzoxazine growth decreased significantly and ...
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 ...
Pyrolysis of poly(phenylene vinylene)s with polycaprolactone side chains
Nur, Yusuf; Çolak, Demet; Cianga, Ioan; Yagci, Yusuf; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2008-05-01)
The thermal degradation characteristics of a new macromonomer poly(epsilon-caprolactone) with central 4,4'-dicarbaldehyde terphenyl moieties and poly(phenylene vinylene)s with well defined (E-caprolactone), (PPV/PCL) as lateral substituents were investigated via direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry. The unexpectedly high thermal stability of the macromonomer was attributed to intermolecular acetylation of benzaldehyde yielding a hemiacetal and causing a crosslinked structure during the pyrolysis. Increased th...
Thermal decomposition of glycidyl azide polymer by direct insertion probe mass spectrometry
Fazlioǧlu, Hatice; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2002-01-01)
Thermal decomposition reactions and products of glycidyl azide polymer (GAP), have been investigated by direct insertion mass spectrometry and evolved gas analyses by FTIR spectroscopy techniques. It has been observed that thermal degradation of GAP begins with cleavage of the side groups. Although the main decomposition started with the elimination of molecular nitrogen from the azide functional group, degradation initiated by loss of N-3 and CH2N3, depolymerization type reactions were also identified. Rea...
Thermal degradation of poly(p-phenylene-graft-ε-caprolactone) copolymer
Nur, Yusuf; Yurteri, Seda; Cianga, Ioan; Yagci, Yusuf; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2007-01-01)
The thermal degradation of poly (p-phenylene-graft-epsilon-caprolactone) (PPP), synthesized by Suzuki polycondensation of poly(E-caprolactone) (PCL) with a central 2,5-dibromo-1,4-benzene on the chain with 1,4-phenylene-diboronic acid, has been studied via direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry. The thermal degradation occurred mainly in two steps. In the first step, decomposition of PCL chains occurred. A slight increase in thermal stability of PCL chains was noted. In the second stage of pyrolysis, the decomp...
