Synthesis and thermal stability of antimony tris (thioethyl stearate) for PVC

A novel type of thermal stabilizer-antimony tris (thioethyl stearate) (ATS) was synthsized. Its thermal stability was measured by heat-aging oven test when incorporated into PVC. ATS was synthesized from stearic acid, antimony trioxide and 2-mercaptoethanol in two steps. The reaction conditions of synthesis were optimized through orthogonal test. Experimental results show that the molar ratio of stearic acid and antimony tris (2-hydroxyethylthiolate) was 1.2, adding 0.6% tetra-n-butyl titanate as catalyst and xylene as azeotropic solvent, heating and refluxing for about 4 h, and the yield of ATS is 83.9%. The thermal stability time is about 40 min(at 200 °C) when added 2phr(per hundred resin) in PVC. The thermal stability of ATS is better than that of Ca-Zn complex and basic lead stabilizers, and equal to that of dibutyltin dilaurate.
