In a previous paper, the theory of polylefin stabilization and the major factors contributing to degradation were discussed. This paper reviews the methods of test employed to date, the characteristics of a good stabilization system, and the experimental work we propose to use to study the problem. The characteristics of a stabilizer which are reviewed are: color, melt temperature, solubility, resistance to extraction, migration, phase state, structural arrangement, energy considerations, and thermod…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
