The thermal degradation of polystyrene peroxide was carried out using differential scanning calorimetry. The activation energy (E) was found to be 136 kJ mole–1 at all extents of decomposition. TheE value was found to correspond to-O-O-dissociation. The order of reaction was found to decrease from 2 to 1 as the decomposition progresse.
