Kishore, K and Mohandas, K and Annakutty, KS (1983) Is Gasification Rate Controlling Step in Polymer Ignition? In: Combustion Science and Technology, 31 (3). pp. 183-194.Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)
A kinetic study of the polymer ignition processes has been carried out from the ignition delay measurements at different temperatures. The process was found to have a low activation energy, and from a comparison with the results of the kinetic study of the polymer gasification, it is argued that the rate controlling step could be the gasification of the degradation products. A pyrolysis gas chromatographic study of several polymers support the above conclusion.
