General description

N-Ethylacetamide is a suitable nylon model for mechanistic studies of dye fading.


N-Ethylacetamide was used to investigate propylene carbonate and a mixture of N-methylformamide and N-ethylacetamide by broadband dielectric and mechanical shear spectroscopy. It was used in determination of reaction products of OH-oxidation of N-methylpyrrolidone under atmospheric conditions.

Propylene carbonate and a mixture of two secondary amides, N-methylformamide and N-ethylacetamide, are investigated by means of broadband dielectric and mechanical shear spectroscopy. The similarities between the rheological and the dielectric responses of these liquids and of the previously investigated...
