The subsequent torque decrease was attributed to the esterolysis transreaction.
Sequence randomization is expected to occur not only because of the statistical character of the acidolysis and esterolysis reactions taking place during the first stage of the process between the functional groups of the monomers and the ester bonds of PET, but also thanks to the entropy-driven transesterification reactions accompanying the subsequent polycondensation.
Other reactions such as acidolysis, alcoholysis and esterolysis are disregarded for simplicity.
