A model study in hexadecane showed that the mechanism involves the selectivity of TEMPO for radical termination with carbon-centered radicals formed after peroxide homolysis and propagation steps before peroxide-initiated crosslinking.
Peroxide yields, defined as the moles of VTEOS grafted per mole of cumyloxy radicals generated by DCP homolysis, varied from a low of 22 grafts per radical at a peroxide loading of 0.
Simplified treatments of the initiation process attribute macroradical formation to hydrogen atom abstraction by the oxygen-centred radicals derived from peroxide homolysis.
Since the rate constant for DCP homolysis is known, the application of this expression to VTEOS conversion profiles requires estimates of three parameters ([k.
The mechanism for metal cluster formation probably involves the homolysis of Me-S bonds, with formation of zero-valence metal atoms and sulfur radicals, SR.
According to Grassie and Farish (14), mechanism of the thermal degradation of polystyrene consists of chain homolysis and disproportionation below 300 [degrees] C.
