      he use of ionic liquids as additives and an economic and environmentally benign alternative to conventional inorganic and organic additives in poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) formulation is investigated by using thermogravimetric anal-ysis. The present study deals with an elegant exploration of the resulting thermal profiles to disclose the pattern of thermal degradation for $N$-butylpyridinium hexafluorophosphate and PVC formulation as well. Furthermore, non-isothermal kinetic investigations providing sound information about kinetic parameters, such as activation energy and frequency factor by using the Coats–Redfern equation in the temperature range of 593–663 K for $N$-butylpyridinium hexafluorophosphate and 423–473 K for the resulting PVC formulation were performed.
