Abstract
Poly(vinylidene chloride) (PVDC) was decomposed by thermal treatment to 800 degreesC under inert atmosphere, using themogravimetry-mass spectrometry ( TG-MS). The evolvement of hydrogen chloride was still observed at 800 degre esC for the degradation of PVDC. The dehydrochlorination process was divide d into two stages according to difference in the formation rate of hydrogen chloride and trichlorobenzene. Dehydrochlorination was accompanied by the evolvement of trichlorobenzene during the first stage below 380 degreesC, b ut trichlorobenzene was not observed during the second stage above 380 degr eesC.
