AbstractThe thermal degradation of poly(ethylene terephthalate) in the presence as well as in the absence of the flame retardant tris(2,3-dibromopropyl) phosphate was studied by pyrolysis—gas chromatography. The study has employed a range of pyrolysis temperatures between 450 ° C and 700 ° C in both helium and air. Comparison of the pyrolysis products obtained in oxidative (air) and non-oxidative (helium) environments showed that oxygen does not play a large role in the degradation process under the conditions employed in this study. The technique was capable of differentiating between the products produced from the two samples examined (flame retarded and non-flame retarded) and the chemical reactions leading to their formation. The influence of the flame retardant upon specific reaction schemes was postulated.
