Revising the mechanism of polymer autooxidation

Gryn'ova, Ganna; Hodgson, Jennifer; Coote, Michelle


The basic scheme for autooxidation of polymers, originally developed by Bolland, Gee and co-workers for rubbers and lipids, is now widely applied to all types of polymeric materials. According to their scheme, the reaction that makes this process autocatalytic, referred to as the propagation step, is a hydrogen abstraction from the next substrate by the peroxyl radical (ROO + RH → ROOH + R). In this study, using advanced quantum-chemical methods, we have shown that this step is actually...[Show more]
