Abstract : Heterogeneous hydrolytic treatment of branched chain polymers of alpha cyanoacrylic esters resulted in a somewhat higher rate of degradation than those of the corresponding straight chain alcoholic ester polymers. However, this rate of degradation was still slower than that of the methyl alpha cyanoacrylate polymer. (Author)
