Thermal degradation of poly(2,2′,-propane-bis-4-phenyl carbonate) or bisphenol A polycarbonate (PC) alone and in presence of metal oxide as additives have been discussed. Thermal degradation of PC in presence of metal oxide additives may be surface induced catalytic thermo-oxidative degradation. Some metal oxides retard thermo-oxidative degradation of PC.
