Title

Kinetic of Thermal Degradation of Poly(isobornyl Methacrylate)

Abstract

The kinetic of the thermal degradation of poly(isobornyl methacrylate) (PIBORNMA) was investigated by thermo gravimetric (TG) analysis at different heating rates. TG curves showed that the thermal decomposition of PIBORNMA occurred in one stage. The apparent activation energies of thermal decomposition of PIBORNMA was determined by Tang, Flynn-Wall-Ozawa (FWO), Kissenger-Akahira-Sunose (KAS) and Coats-Redfern methods and the values were 80.30, 84.69, 79.81 and 84.413 kJ/mol, respectively. The mechanism function and pre-exponential factor was determined by master plots method.
