The Use of Subambient Thermal Volatilisation Analysis to Study Volatile Products of Polymer Degradation

  • I. C. McNeill


Subambient TVA may be carried out on the collected products of heating a sample in a TVA system. The relationship to other TVA methods is considered and the technique is illustrated by several examples from polymer degradation studies.
