Measurement of the Kinetics of Dissociation of Dicyclopentadiene Derivatives with the Differential Scanning Calorimeter
In the course of studies of potential thermally reversible crosslinking agents for cotton cellulose, it became necessary to develop a method of measuring the kinetic parameters for the dissociation of dimers of methyl cyclopentadienecarboxylate. It has previously been reported that tetracyanoethylene and N-phenylmaleimide are suitable trapping agents for the products of these dissociations (1). A method capable of measuring the kinetics of such reactions, both in solution and in the cellulose fiber matrix, was required. The use of the differential scanning calorimeter for measuring the kinetics of these reactions in solution is discussed here.
