The degradation of polystyrene has been a subject of many investigations and a large volume of literature exists on the subject. More recently Cascaval et al.(1) have reported that the weight loss of polystyrene containing end groups derived from azobisisobutyronitrile (AIBN) seems to be different from that of anionically polymerized samples. We have been working for some time with polystyrene having different end groups, and in this communication we would like to report some interesting observations related to the decomposition of some of these polymers.
