Structure of Oxidized Polyacrylonitrile

Abstract

CURRENT commercial methods for converting polyacrylonitrile based textile fibre to high elastic modulus carbon fibre usually1 but not essentially2 involve a first stage of heating to a temperature between 200 and 300° C in air. During this so-called preoxidation stage, a proportion of oxygen is taken into the modified polymer structure to produce a black… (More)
