PA 6-6 hydrolysis at 60, 70, 80 and 90 C in distilled water has been studied by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, viscometry in molten state, differential scanning calorimetry and uniaxial tensile testing. The molar mass decreases sharply from the early periods of exposure to reach an equilibrium value of about MnE z 10 11 kg mol 1 almost temperature… (More)
