Abstract

The objective of the investigations presented in this thesis is to develop new long-lasting antidegradants and to gain a better insight in the protection mechanism of these products. A better understanding of the mechanism can help to pave the way for new developments, providing longer-term protection of rubber compounds. Longlasting antioxidants are expected to remain longer active in rubber compounds compared to conventional antioxidants, both during processing and service. Developments in this field are based on high molecular weight and polymer bound antioxidants. Long-lasting antiozonants are meant to migrate slower to the surface of rubber compounds compared to conventional antiozonants. Developments in this field are based on high molecular weight products.
