The thermal degradation of polymers has been at the center of thermal analysis studies for many years. Of special interest are the degradation kinetics under inert and oxidative atmospheres. Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) is a common method to study the kinetics of polymer degradations. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is also employed to elucidate… CONTINUE READING
