Abstract : The autoxidation of a film of isotactic polybutene-1 (IPB) containing a large amount of metallic ash (about 0.2%) was studied by means of infrared spectroscopy. Reaction temperatures were varied from 105 to 120C and oxygen concentrations from 25 to 100% by volume. A reaction scheme previously reported for the autoxidation of atactic polybutene-1 (APB) was utilized for the IPB. Various results obtained for IPB were compared with those previously reported for APB. (Author)
