The thermal and photodegradation of a number of linear polysulfides (LP) H(SC2H4OCH2OC2H4S)(n)H, cured using inorganic (MnO2, NaBO3) and organic (t-butyl hydroperoxide or TBHP) curatives, have been studied by H-1 and C-13 NMR spectroscopy, IR spectroscopy and electrospray ionisation mass spectrometry (ESI). We have found that cured-LPs degrade thermally and photochemically by two main parallel pathways namely (i) a free radical autoxidation mechanism and (ii) a hydrolysis mechanism. The nature of the curative used determines the principal pathway, thus LP blocks cured using TBHP degrade predominantly by the hydrolysis mechanism, while LPs cured using MnO2 and NaBO3 degrade almost exclusively via the free radical autoxidation route.
