Abstract

Ethylene, ethylene-propylene mixtures and propylene polymerize on irradiation in an aqueous silver-salt solution under moderate pressures. While oils or waxes are formed from propylene, ethylene yields solid polymers of high molecular weight. The yields obtained exceeded 25 g of polyethylene per litre per hour. With a dose rate of 7.1 x l0{sup 3} rad/hr this corresponds to a G-value (number of molecules reacted per 100 eV of energy absorbed) of 0.6 x 10{sup 5} in terms of the overall system and above 0.5 x 10{sup 6} in terms of dissolved ethylene. The polymer formation goes up with increasing ethylene pressure and increasing silver salt concentration. The silver salt solution can be re-used without a decrease in yield. The reaction is inhibited by traces of oxygen. The polymer yield is proportional to the absorbed dose if the dose rate is kept constant. The variation of yield with dose rate (J) equals J{sup 0,5-0.6}. The optimum temperature range is between 20 and 30{sup o}C. Below 0{sup o}C there is almost no reaction. The stirring velocity does not influence the yield. The specific gravity of the products is about 0.94g/cm{sup 3}; melting points between 126 and 131{sup o}C were observed.

The stirring velocity does not influence the yield. The specific gravity of the products is about 0.94g/cm{sup 3}; melting points between 126 and 131{sup o}C were observed. Infra-red absorption studies gave no evidence for C=C double bonds, C-O-H or C=0 groupings; a small number of C-O-C bonds were detected. There is a methyl-group content of 0.3%. The polymers are probably long branched chains and have viscosities between 5 and 10. (author) [French] L'ethylene, les melanges d'ethylene et de propylene et le propylene se polymerisent sous rayonnement dans une solution aqueuse de sel d'argent a des pressions moderees. Le propylene donne naissance a des produits a consistance d'huiles ou de cires alors que l'ethylene produit des polymeres solides de poids moleculaire eleve. Les rendements obtenus depassaient 25g de polyethylene par litre et par heure. Pour un debit de dose de 7,1 x 10{sup 3} rad/h, ceci correspond a une valeur de G (nombre de molecules reagissant pour 100 eV d'energie absorbee) de 0,6 x 10{sup 5} pour le systeme global et superieure a 0,5 x 10{sup 6} pour l'ethylene dissoute. La formation de polymeres augmente lorsque la pression de l'ethylene et la concentration du sel d'argent croissent. La solution de sel d'argent peut etre reutilisee sans que le rendement diminue. La reaction est inhibee par des traces d'oxygene. Le rendement en polymere est proportionnel a la dose absorbee si l e debit de dose est constant. La variation du rendement en fonction du debit de dose J est egale a J{sup 0,5-0,6}. La temperature optimum se situe entre 20 et 30{sup o}C, Au-dessous de 0{sup o}C, la reaction ne se produit pas. La vitesse d'agitation n'a aucune influence sur le rendement. Le poids specifique des produits est d'environ 0,94g /cm{sup 3}; les points de fusion se situent entre 126 et 131{sup o}C. Des etudes sur l'absorption infrarouge n'ont revele aucune double liaison C-C ni aucun groupe C-O-H ou C=O; on a decele un petit nombre de liaisons C-O-C. La proportion de groupes methyles est de 0,3%; les polymeres ont probablement de longues chaines ramifiees et leur vicsocite varie entre 5 et 10. (author) [Spanish] El etileno, las mezclas de etileno y propeno y el propeno polimerizan por irradiacion en solucion acuosa de sales de plata a presiones moderadas. Mientras que el propeno forma aceites y ceras, el etileno da origen a polimeros solidos de elevado peso molecular. Los rendimientos obtenidos fueron superiores a 25g de polietileno por litro y hora. Para una intensidad de dosis de 7,1 x 10{sup 3} rad/h, esto corresponde a un valor G (numero de moleculas que reaccionan por 100 eV de energia absorbida) de 0,6 x 10{sup 5} por el sistema global y superior a 0,5 x 10{sup 6} para el etileno disuelto. La formacion del polimero aumenta con la presion del etileno y la concentracion de las sales de plata. La solucion de sales de plata puede volverse a utilizar sin disminucion del rendimiento. La reaccion es inhibida por vestigios de oxigeno. La cantidad de polimero formada es proporcional a la dosis absorbida, para una intensidad de dosis constante. La variacion del rendimiento en funcion de l a intensidad de dosis, o sea J, es igual a J{sup 0,5-0,6}. Eliintervalo optimo de temperaturas es el comprendido entre 20 y 30{sup o}C. Por debajo de 0{sup o}C, la reaccion deja de verificarse. La velocidad de agitacion no influye en el rendimiento. El peso especifico de los productos es del orden de 0,94g/cm{sup 3}; se han observado puntos de fusion que oscilan entre 126 y 131{sup o}C. El analisis por absorcion de rayos infrarrojos no indica la existencia de dobles enlaces C=C ni de grupos C-O-H o C=O; se ha detectado un pequeno numero de enlaces C-O-C. El contenido de grupos metilo es del 0,3%. Los polimeros estan probablemente constituidos por largas cadenas ramificadas y presentan viscosidades comprendidas entre 5 y 10. (author) [Russian] Ehtilen, ehtilen-propilenovye smesi i propilen polimerizovali pod oblucheniem v vodnykh rastvorakh serebryanykh solej pri umerennom davlenii. V to vremya kak iz propilena poluchali masla ili voski, ehtilen daval tverdye polimery s vysokim molekulyarnym vesom. Vykhod prevysil 25 g poliehtilena na 1 litr v chas. Pri moshchnosti dozy 7,1 x 10{sup 3} rad/chas ehto sootvetstvuet znacheniyu G (chislo molekul, proreagirovavshikh na kazhdye 100 ehv pogloshchennoj ehnergii), ravnomu 0,6 x 10{sup 5} pri uchete vsej sistemy i prevyshaet 0,5 x 10{sup 6} pri uchete rastvorennogo ehtilena. Obrazovanie polimera rastet pri uvelichenii davleniya i kontsentratsii serebryanoj soli. Rastvor serebryanoj soli mozhno ispol'zovat' povtorno, ne umen'shaya vykhoda polimera.
