Synthesis, Characterization and Thermal Decomposition Kinetics of a Novel Benzofuran Ketoxime Derived Polymer.


PMID 26085427

Abstract

A novel benzofuran ketoxime derived polymer, poly(benzofuran-2-yl-methylketoxime-O-methacrylate) [poly(BMKMA], was firstly synthesized by free radical polymerization method. Its thermal degradation studies were performed by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) in order to determine the actual reaction mechanisms of the decomposition process. The activation energy of the solid-state process was determined using Flynn-Wall-Ozawa method, which resulted to be 235.94 kJ/mol. The activation energies of different mechanism models were determined by Coats-Redfern, Madhusudanan and Van Krevelen kinetic methods. Compared with the Ozawa method, the actual reaction mechanism obeyed deceleration type, phase boundary controlled reaction (R1).
