The Thermodynamics of the Polyamide Resin (nylon-6)
Carbon-Hydrogen-Oxygen-Nitrogen Vapor System
A thermodynamic investigation of polyamide resin (nylon-6) over a range of temperatures up to 6000 deg K and pressures up to one hundred thousand atmospheres. Two sets of equilibrium composition equations are used: one representing a pure gas phase; the other, a heterogeneous system of gas and solid carbon. The results of the computational program are presented in both tabular and graphic form, the latter being a conventional Mollier diagram in which specific enthalpy is plotted against specific entropy, with cross plots of temperature, pressure, and molecular weight.
