The breaking of a chemical bond with the addition of the elements of ammonia (NH2 and H) at the point of breakage.
[ammonia + G. lysis, dissolution]

ammonolysis

/am·mo·nol·y·sis/ (am″o-nol´ĭ-sis) a process analogous to hydrolysis, but in which ammonia takes the place of water.

According to its inventors' claims, this process can produce monomers with a higher selectivity as compared to DuPont's ammonolysis process.
This is not the case in the DuPont ammonolysis process, which targets the formation of nitriles, and subsequently, HMD.
In this section, we review some of the modeling efforts for the depolymerization of nylon 6 to caprolactam [28] as well as the ammonolysis of nylon 6,6 and nylon 6 mixtures [29].
A kinetic model of the depolymerization of nylon 6 and nylon 6,6 mixtures via DuPont's ammonolysis route was more recently proposed by Kalfas (29).
