Abstract : Teflon 7 was thermally degraded in vacuum both at constant temperature and at a constant heating rate. Activation energies are reported. The reaction was found to be first-order throughout the temperature range investigated. Two new procedures for rapid treatment of kinetic data are reported, and the results are compared with conventinal procedures. (Author)
