Dear arush

Free Radical Mechanism

The relative stability of radicals can be correlated to the hydrogen bond dissociation energies of the parent compound.

High energy free radicals tend to abstract H from the backbone leading to grafting, branching reactions or decomposition for PP.

Lower energy radicals are more stable and selective.  They will preferably react on monomers containing double bonds and they are very good "monomer chasers" (acrylics, final stage in EPS, etc.)

 

Compound Dissociation
Energy (KJ/mol)
Type of radicals
381 Low energy radicals:
- high selectivity
- good diffusion
397
410
435 High energy radicals:
- poor selectivity
- good H abstractors
- good diffusion
439
469
469
498
377

 

The above shows the dissociation energies of various hydrogenated compounds.

Please feel free to post as many doubts on our discussion forum as you can.we will get you the answer and detailed  solution very  quickly.

All the best.
