These types of stabilization systems are usually based on a combination of powerful melt-processing stabilizers, such as phosphites, hydroxylamines, tocopherols, or blends of these chemistries, in combination with hindered amines--which provide not only excellent UV stability, but also good long-term thermal stability.
The hydrogenolytic cleavage of the N-O bond of the hydroxylamine 10a,b has been also improved and takes place also quantitatively (+30-40% with respect to the previous method) [19] by performing the reaction with Pd/C 10% in ethyl acetate at room temperature for 3h (extended time).
A patent was lately published where it was shown that hydroxylamine salts are combustion improvers [102].
