The Conant-Finkelstein reaction was applied to PVC with the aiming of replacing the chlorine atoms with iodine ones. The effect of reaction temperature with regard to the characteristics of the modified PVC was significant. Formation of a gel and degraded polymeric materials was observed when working at temperatures higher than 60 °C. The degraded polymer formed at 70 °C was insoluble and gave rise to a polyacetylene-like chain with a melting point of 60 °C. However, the reaction on PVC at… 

Upgrading of poly(vinyl chloride) by chemical modifications using sodium sulfide

The recycling of poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) is one of the most important issues in the treatment of waste plastics. To improve PVC recycling, it is necessary to develop new recycling techniques,

Hydrophilic modification of polyvinyl chloride with polyacrylic acid using ATRP
