Thermal and thermo-oxidative stability of some poly(siloxane-azomethine)s obtaining starting from bis(formyl-p-phenoxymethyl)tetramethyldisiloxane and different organic diamines have been investigated by TG+DTG+DSC simultaneous analyses
performed in argon flow and air static atmosphere, respectively. TG, DTG and DSC curves of each polymer showed three or four
successive degradation steps at different temperatures according to the composition of the sample and the gaseous atmosphere
in which the thermal analysis was performed. For each process, the following parameters were evaluated: total mass loss, temperature
corresponding to the maximum reaction rate, maximum reaction rate, temperature corresponding to certain mass loss. In order
to determine the thermal and thermo-oxidative stabilities of investigated polymers, the following values were determined:
Tx% — temperature corresponding to x% mass loss, and %ΔmT — mass loss at a given temperature T. The obtained orders of stability were correlated with the structure of investigated polymers.

The babassu (Orbignya Phalerata Mart.) biodiesel has lauric esters as main constituents, resulting in high oxidative stability and low cloud and freezing
points. In order to reduce these side effects, the saturated ethyl esters content was reduced by means of winterization process.
The TMDSC and PDSC techniques were used to verify the thermal and oxidative stabilities of the ethyl babassu biodiesel. During
the heating stage, the winterized solid phase of ethyl esters presented an endothermic transition associated to the solidification
process. This behavior was not observed for the liquid winterized FAEE, confirming the efficiency of the winterization process.

The crystallization and melting behavior of PP/CaCO3 nanocomposites during thermo-oxidative degradation process were studied using differential scanning calorimetry and X-ray
diffraction. The results indicated that addition of nano-CaCO3 and compatibilizer significantly reduced the thermo-oxidative stability of PP. Before degradation, thermal aging resulted
in an increase in the melting temperature and crystallinity of PP due to the annealing crystallization. Thermo-oxidative degradation
decreased the melting temperature and increased melting range, and caused an increase in crystallinity of PP due to the chemi-crystallization.
The investigation also indicated that the influence of degradation on the small crystals were much more significant than that
on the large ones.
