Oxidative degradation and stabilisation of polymers

Al-Malaika, Sahar (2003). Oxidative degradation and stabilisation of polymers. International Materials Reviews, 48 (3), pp. 165-185.


The aim of this review is to present a coherent treatment of the fundamental aspects of the science that underpins current technological practices, and future advances, in the stabilisation of synthetic organic polymers. Aspects of polymer oxidation are introduced first before discussing the role of antioxidants, with numerous examples, to illustrate their basic mechanisms of action. The state of the art is discussed with particular emphasis on recent development and progress.
