Abstract  

The thermal degradation of polymers has been studied quite extensively using thermogravimetric measurements. For the kinetic description, most of the times single rate heating data and model-fitting methods have been used. Since the thermal degradation of the polymers is a very complex reaction, the choice of a reliable model or a combination of kinetic models is very important. The advantages or the disadvantages of using a single heating rate or multiple heating rates data for the determination of the kinetic triplet have been investigated. Also, the activation energy has been calculated with the isoconversional and model-fitting methods. The reaction model was determined with the model-fitting method. The limits of all these procedures were investigated with experimental data of the thermal degradation of the poly(ethylene adipate) (PEAd).
