Abstract

The writers studied the effect of Co{sup 60} radiation on polyethylacrylat e specimens of different molecular weights, in solution and in the solid state. The solvents used were benzene and carbon tetrachloride, and the experiments were performed at ambient temperature with and without the presence of air. No after-effect was noted when the solutions were irradiated. When the diluted solutions were irradiated with increasing doses in the presence of air, a decrease was noted in the intrinsic viscosity and the sedimentation constant. The results could be explained by degradation. The direct and indirect effects were porportional to the dose and varied in different solvents. They were also both directly proportional to the initial molecular weight of the polymer. The influence of oxygen and inhibitors was studied. Specimens were also irradiated in the solid state, when it was found that cross-linking occurred with or without the presence of oxygen, and was accompanied by a varying degree of degradation. Finally, tests made on concentrated solutions in carbon tetrachloride showed some competition between degradation and cross-linking.

(author) [French] Les auteurs etudient l'effet du rayonnement du Co{sup 60} sur des echantillons d'acrylate de polyethyle de differents poids moleculares en solution et a l'etat solide. Les solvants utilises sont le benzene et le tetrachlorure de carbone; les essais sont faits a la temperature ordinaire en absence et en presence d'air. Aucun post-effet n'a ete observe lors de l'irradiation des solutions. Si l'on irradie des solutions diluees en presence d'air avec des doses croissantes, on constate que la viscosite intrinseque et la constante de sedimentation diminuent. Les resultats obtenus peuvent etre interpretes sur la base d'une degradation. L'effet direct et l'effet indirect sont proportionnels a la dose et varient d'un solvant a l'autre. Ils sont egalement tous deux directement proportionnels au poids moleculaire initial du polymere. L'influence de l'oxygene ou d'inhibiteurs est etudiee. Des irradiations ont ete egalement faites a l'etat solide. Elles montrent que dans ce cas il y a reticulation que ce soit en presence ou en absence d'oxygene. Cette reticulation est accompagnee d'une degradation plus ou moins importante suivant les cas. Enfin des essais faits en solutions concentrees dans le tetrachlorure de carbone montrent que dans ce cas il y a competition entre la degradation et la reticulation. (author) [Spanish] Los autores estudiaron los efectos ejercidos por las radiaciones emitidas por el cobalto-60 sobre muestras de poliacrilato de etilo de diferentes pesos moleculares, en estado solido y disueltas en benceno y tetracloruro de carbono; los ensayos se realizaron a la temperatura ambiente en ausencia y en presencia de aire. Los autores no observaron efecto de postirradiacion alguno. Al irradiar soluciones diluidas con dosis crecientes de rayos gamma en presencia de aire, comprobaron que la viscosidad intrinseca y la constante de sedimentacion experimentan una disminucion. Los resultados obtenidos pueden interpretarse admitiendo que se produce una degradacion de las moleculas de poliacrilato de etilo. Tanto el efecto directo como el indirecto son proporcionales a la dosis y varian segun el disolvente. Ambos son directamente proporcionales al peso molecular inicial del polimero. Los autores estudieron la influencia oxigeno y de algunos agentes inhibidores. Tambien han sometido a irradiacion muestras en estado solido. En este caso, la reticulacion se produce tanto en presencia como en ausencia de oxigeno. Esta reticulacion va acompanada de una degradacion de importancia variable. Por otra parte, los ensayos realizados con soluciones concentradas de poliacrilato de etilo en tetracloruro de carbono demuestran que el proceso de degradacion compite con el de reticulacion. (author) [Russian] Avtory izuchayut dejstvie izlucheniya kobal'ta-60 na obraztsy akrilata poliehtila s razlichnym molekulyarnym vesom v rastvore i tverdom sostoyanii. Ispol'zuemymi rastvoritelyam i yavlyayutsya benzol i chetyrekhkhloristyj uglerod; opyty proizvodilis ' pri obychnoj temperature bez vozdukha i pri nalichii vozdukha. Nikakogo posleduyushchego dejstviya vo vremya irradiatsii rastvorov zamecheno ne bylo. Pri obluchenii vozrastayushchim i dozami razzhizhzhennykh rastvorov, pri nalichii vozdukha, zamecheno, chto sobstvennaya vyazkost' i postoyannoe osazhdenie umen'shayutsya . Poluchennye rezul'taty mogut byt' istolkovany na osnove degradatsii. Pryamoj i kosvennyj ehffekty proportsional'n y doze i zavisyat ot rastvoritelya. Oba oni takzhe pryamoproportsional'n y pervonachal'nomu molekulyarnomu vesu polimera. Izuchaetsya vliyanie kisloroda ili ingibitora (zamedlitelya) . Obluchenie provodilos' takzhe v tverdom sostoyanii. Ono pokazalo, chto v ehtom sluchae nablyudaetsya poperechnaya svyaz', kak pri nalichii, tak i pri otsutstvii kisloroda. EHta poperechnaya svyaz' soprovozhdaetsya bolee ili menee vazhnoj degradatsiej, v zavisimosti ot sluchaya. Nakonets, opyty, provedennye nad kontsentrirovannymi rastvorami v chetyrekhkhloristom uglerode, pokazyvayut, chto v dannom sluchae imeet mesto sopernichestvo mezhdu degradatsiej i poperechnoj svyaz'yu.
