Abstract

Abstract A study of the polymerization of a number of monomers and a variety of known absorbents has been carried out using the technique of accelerating rate calorimetry. Monomers chosen for the study were styrene, vinylidene chloride, ethyl acrylate, methyl acrylate, butyl acrylate, and methyl methacrylate. The absorbents tested were Zorb-all, vermiculite, Safestep, and Slikwik and Lite-R-Cobs ground corn cobs. The data indicate that styrene, methyl acrylate, ethyl acrylate, butyl acrylate and methyl methacrylate exhibit accelerated polymerization when in the presence of Zorb-all at elevated temperatures compared to the neat monomers under conditions of the experiment.
