Abstract : The melting point of polyacrylonitrile can be determined directly by differential thermal analysis, provided that a sufficiently fast heating rate is used. The experimental value of 326C agrees well with predicted values of the melting point. The disparity between oxidative and thermal decomposition of the polymer is noted. (Author)
