Polymer Degradation and Electron Spin Resonance Spectroscopy
Two years ago, at the symposium in Prague, I chose as the theme of a lecture similar to this one, the application of modern analytical techniques to the solution of polymer degradation problems1. I tried to demonstrate some of the contributions which had been made by the use of, for example, infrared, mass and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy as well as gas chromatography and radiochemical techniques. I looked forward to rapid developments in the utilization of such methods and especially to the simultaneous application of a number of them in order to try to solve some of the more difficult problems of polymer degradation.
