Among the polybenzoxazines, nitroaniline based benzoxazine polymers are not popular for which the polymerization process overlaps with the beginning of the thermal degradation. Phenol and p-nitro aniline based benzoxazine monomer was synthesized and polymerized by applying different temperatures and curing periods systematically to investigate the effect of curing program on polymerization mechanisms via direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry, DP-MS technique. In order to get a better insight on the process, low energy DP-MS analysis was also performed and the results showed that the polymerization of nitroaniline based benzoxazine mainly proceed via attack of NCH2 groups to the phenol ring, contrary to the opposing reaction pathways suggested for benzoxazine based on aniline and the radicals generated by elimination of nitroaniline during curing and/or pyrolysis combined to form unsaturated linkages, resulting a very high char yield.

Polymerization of benzoxazines and thermal degradation mechanisms of polybenzoxazines were investigated using the direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry (DP-MS) technique. The benzoxazine structures were based on phenol and aniline and on bisphenol-A and methylamine or aniline. Polymerizations of the benzoxazines were carried out by curing them at elevated temperatures without addition of initiator or catalyst. DP-MS data showed the presence of chains generated by opposing polymerization reaction pathways indic...
Effects of nanoparticles on thermal degradation of polylactide/aluminium diethylphosphinate composites
Kaya, Hatice; Özdemir, Esra; Kaynak, Cevdet; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2016-03-01)
We investigated the thermal degradation characteristics of polylactide (PLA) aluminium diethylphosphinate (AlPi) composites involving SiO2, halloysite (HNT) and organically modified montmorillonite (OMMT) via direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry. Presence of nanoparticles, SiO2, HNT and OMMT affected both thermal stability and relative yields of thermal degradation products of PLA/AlPi. The transesterification reactions and interactions between PLA and AlPi were depressed in the presence of SiO2 and HNT. The ...
Effects of nanoparticles on thermal characteristics of polyamide-6, polylactic acid and polystyrene involving various flame retardants
Kaya, Hatice; Hacaloğlu, Jale; Kaynak, Cevdet; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2013)
In this work, the effects of addition of nanoparticles halloysite, (HNT), organically modified montmorillonites (MMT10A, MMT25A and MMT30B) and SiO2 on thermal degradation characteristics of polyamide 6 (PA6), polylactide (PLA) and polystyrenes (PS and HIPS) involving flame retardants are investigated. The composites of PA6 and PLA involve phosphorus containing flame retardant, aluminium diethylphosphinate (AlPi). Composites HIPS involve mineral flame retardant, aluminium hydroxide and those of PS involve h...
Effect of cleaning process on the combustion characteristics of two different rank coals
Kök, Mustafa Verşan; Ozbas, K.E. (2001-11-01)
In this research, thermogravimetry (TG/DTG) was used to determine the combustion characteristics of two different rank coals (Tuncbilek and Af in Elbistan) before and after cleaning process. Applying sink-float process cleaned raw coal samples, and optimum-separating densities for each sample was determined using the criteria of "degree of washability". The results indicated that coal cleaning was very effective on Tuncbilek sample due to its high rank. TG/DTG analysis of raw and cleaned samples indicated d...
The use of pyrolysis mass spectrometry to investigate polymerization and degradation processes of methyl amine-based benzoxazine
Bagherifam, Shahla; Uyar, Tamer; Ishida, Hatsuo; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2010-06-01)
In this study, direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry, DP-MS, was applied to investigate curing and polymerization mechanisms of phenol and methyl amine-based benzoxazine monomer, and thermal decomposition and crosslinking characteristics of the corresponding polybenzoxazine. The results indicated opposing polymerization reaction routes besides the generally accepted one. The cleavage of C-O bonds of the oxazine rings either followed by transformation into a polymer constituting ortho or para substituted phenol...
