The random degradation of four and six-membered ring ladder polymers were investigated by means of a digital computer and the results compared to a single chain polymer undergoing degradation under identical conditions. The percent vaporization versus time and the rate of weight loss versus time was plotted and significant differences were obtained. The results indicate that ladder polymers should have increased stability over single chain polymers undergoing random degradation.
