Abstract: A technique was devised for obtaining rate laws and kinetic parameters which describe the thermal degradation of plastics from TGA data. The method is based on the inter-comparison of experiments which were performed at different linear rates of heating. By this method it is possible to determine the activation energy of certain professes without knowing the form of the kinetic equation. This technique was applied to fiberglass-reinforced CTL 91-LD phenolic resin, where the rate law - (1/we)(dw/dt) = 1018e−55,000/RT [(w - wf)/w0,]5, nr.−1, was found to apply to a major part of the degradation. The equation was successfully tested by several techniques, including a comparison with constant temperature data that were available in the literature. The activation energy was thought to be correct within 10 kcal. more

Abstract: TiO2 thin films were prepared on fused quartz by the liquid-phase deposition (LPD) method from a (NH4)2TiF6 aqueous solution upon addition of boric acid (H3BO3) and calcined at various temperatures. The as-prepared films were characterized with thermogravimetry (TG), Fourier transform infrared spectra (FTIR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), UV−Visible spectrophotometry (UV−Vis), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), photoluminescence spectra (PL), and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), respectively. The photocatalytic activity of the samples was evaluated by photocatalytic decolorization of methyl orange aqueous solution. It was found that the as-prepared TiO2 thin films contained not only Ti and O elements, but also a small amount of F, N, and Si elements. The F and N came from the precursor solution, and the amount of F decreased with increasing calcination temperature. Two sources of Si were identified. One was from the SiF62- ions, which were formed by a reaction between the treatment solution and quartz ... more

Abstract: The thermal stability of organically modified layered silicate (OLS) plays a key role in the synthesis and processing of polymer-layered silicate (PLS) nanocomposites. The nonoxidative thermal degradation of montmorillonite and alkyl quaternary ammonium-modified montmorillonite were examined using conventional and high-resolution TGA combined with Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and mass spectrometry (TG−FTIR−MS) and pyrolysis/GC−MS. The onset temperature of decomposition of these OLSs was approximately 155 °C via TGA and 180 °C via TGA−MS, where TGA−MS enables the differentiation of water desorbtion from true organic decomposition. Analysis of products (GC−MS) indicates that the initial degradation of the surfactant in the OLS follows a Hoffmann elimination reaction and that the architecture (trimethyl or dimethyl), chain length, surfactant mixture, exchanged ratio, or preconditioning (washing) does not alter the initial onset temperatures. Catalytic sites on the aluminosilicate layer reduce ther... more

Abstract: We investigated the thermal properties of several imidazolium salts using DSC and TGA/SDTA data. Many of these salts are liquids at sub-ambient temperatures. These ionic liquids form glasses at low temperatures and have minimal vapor pressure up to their thermal decomposition temperature (>400°C). Thermal decomposition is endothermic with the inorganic anions and exothermic with the organic anions investigated. Halide anions drastically reduce the thermal stability of these salts (<300°C). We have observed that aluminium catalyzes the decomposition of the salts containing the inorganic fluoride anions. The imidazolium cations are thermally more stable than the tetraalkyl ammonium cations. more
