Abstract : Absorption spectroscopy in the infrared was used for the determination of photooxidative destruction of isotactic polypropylene. The range of experimentally found inhibition periods (50 to 2000 hours) indicates the possibility of determining with high sensitivity, the resistance of the individual samples to the effect of ultraviolet radiation.
