Products obtained during combustion of polymers under simulated incinerator conditions: II. Polystyrene

Author: Hawley-Fedder RA, Parsons ML, Karasek FW


An apparatus permitting the combustion of large (2 g) polymer samples at high temperature is described. Effluents from combustion are collected in cold traps (liquid nitrogen) and on glass wool for analysis by capillary gas chromatography and gas chromatography—mass spectroetry. Products from polyethylene combustion at four temperatures (800, 850, 900, 959°C) are determined.
