Paper Abstract

Isotopically labelled polyacrylonitriles have been degraded at 235°C in the presence of 16 e 02 and '802 in order to aid the unraveling of the preox infrared spectrum. Replacing 02 with 1802 as a reactant did not affect the position of the 1595 cm-1 band. The only oxygen-18 sensitive modes were found between 1800 and 1650 cm-1. Bands indicative of acids, imides, and pyridone units fused to pyridine rings were detected. The preoxidized powders were subsequently heated in N2 to 750°C. Initially carboxylic acids and imides are lost. Eventually the preox ring vibrations are replaced at higher temperatures by bands at 1600 and 1300 cm-1. The nature of oxygen in the ring structure of preox is discussed.
