dc.description.abstract The rates of decomposition of mixtures of 2-(4-morpholinothio)benzothiazole (MOR) and 2-(4-morpholinodithio)benzothiazole (MDB) with sulfur, ZnO and 2-mercaptobenzothiazole (MBT) were studied by heating appropriate mixtures to various temperatures in a differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) at a programmed rate. Decomposition products were identified and quantified by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Reaction mechanisms to account for the products are proposed. MDB was shown to be thermally less stable than MOR. Polyisoprene, compounded with these curatives, was vulcanized by heating in the DSC. The reaction was stopped at various temperatures and the system characterized by measuring the crosslink density in the rubber, and by HPLC analysis of the extractable curatives and reaction intermediates. It was shown that the reaction mechanism was similar to that which applies to N-cyclohexylbenzothiazole sulfenamide (CBS) accelerated systems. MDB does not delay scorch. en
