Abstract:
Polymers, due to their versatility, have become the essential ingredients to provide a
better quality of life. Industry is permanently facing significant economic, environmental and
societal challenges. The accumulation of plastics in the environment is a matter of great
concern leading to long-term environmental, economic and waste management problems.
Degradation of waste plastics through various means becomes one of the alternatives to deal
with such problems. Stabilization of polymer material continues to be an important technical
field with a lot of industrial and scientific attention. Future developments in the field of
polymer stabilization need to reflect the corresponding economic requirements [1].
Changes in polymer properties due to chemical, physical or biological reactions resulting
in bond scissions and subsequent chemical transformations are categorized as polymer
degradation [2]. Degradation reflects changes in material properties such as mechanical,
optical or electrical characteristics in crazing, cracking, erosion, discoloration and phase
separation. Depending upon the nature of the causing agents, polymer degradations have been
classified as photo-oxidative degradation, thermal degradation, ozone-induced degradation,
mechanochemical degradation, catalytic degradation and biodegradation [3]. For example,
polymers that are used outdoors suffer photo-oxidation promoted by exposure to the
ultraviolet (UV) component of sunlight, leading to molecular chain scission and/or
crosslinking. Some of the products of the chain reactions that occur during photo-oxidation
are themselves prodegradants.
