Mass spectrometric comparison of swift heavy ion-induced and anaerobic thermal degradation of polymers

Lima, V.; Hossain, U. H.; Walbert, T.; Seidl, T.; Ensinger, W.


The study of polymers irradiated by highly energetic ions and the resulting radiation-induced degradation is of major importance for space and particle accelerator applications. The mechanism of ion-induced molecular fragmentation of polyethylene, polyethyleneimine and polyamide was investigated by means of mass spectrometry and infrared spectroscopy. The results show that the introduction of nitrogen and oxygen into the polymer influences the stability rendering aliphatic polymers with...[Show more]
