The characteristics of depolymerization of polycarbonate(PC) in sub-critical water were investigated in the range of 260 ~ 340℃ and 5 ~ 60 min by using a high-pressure batch autoclave reactor.It was found that PC could be effectively depolymerized in sub-critical water.The main products were bisphenol A(BPA)and phenol,which were analyzed by FTIR,SEM,GC /MS and GC.It was found that the temperature and reaction time were important factors in the process of depolymerizaition.Swelling process of PC… CONTINUE READING
