Abstract : The autoxidation of a film of atactic polypropylene was studied by means of infrared spectroscopy. Reaction temperatures varied from 110 to 135C and oxygen concentrations from 5 to 100% by volume. A general reaction scheme previously reported for the autoxidation of polyolefins was utilized for atactic polypropylene. Various results obtained for this polymer were compared with those previously reported for isotactic polypropylene. (Author)
