Abstract : This investigation was conducted to determine the applicability of pyrolytic gas chromatography to the analysis of thermosetting acrylic resins. Primary interest is in the hydroxy functional thermosetting acrylic resins, particularly those prepared from hydroxy ethyl methacrylate and hydroxy propyl methacrylate. The identification of all the major components is possible in a relatively short period of time using minimal samples. The degradation products from the pyrolysis of the resinous material occur in the helium stream and are separated and identified on polar and nonpolar columns. (Author)
