Infrared Study of Polystyrene at Variable Temperature

Volume 38, Number 2 (April 1984) Page 264-267

Nyquist, R.A.

IR spectral data for polystyrene recorded at temperatures ranging from 30-210°C are reported. Certain IR band frequencies shift to lower frequency by as much as 4.5 cm−1 over the temperature range studied. In air, polystyrene oxidizes at 180°C.
