      Thin films of poly(1-butene) with and withouto-phenanthroline bis(1,3-diphenyl triazine-1-oxide)-cobal(II) [I] in the temperature range of 233–333° K have been degraded in air from a UV light of 253.7 nm. The changes in weight average molecular weights, degree of degradation, quantum yields, enthalpy and free energy of activation, and carbonyl and hydroperoxide contents, were followed as a function of the time of irradiation. The inhibition effect ofI is discussed on the basis of the luminescence and UV spectral data. The chelateI behaves both as a thermal and UV stabilizer due to a combination of different kinds of activity in the same molecule.

      The reaction of aminomethylated polystyrene (PSCH2-NH2) and 2-hydroxyacetanilide in DMF results in the formation of polystyrene-anchored monobasic bidentate Schiff base, PSCH2-LH (I). On the other hand, the reaction of chloromethylated polystyrene (PSCH2-Cl), 3-formylsalicylic acid, ethylenediamine and acetylacetone in DMF in presence of ethyl acetate (EA) and triethylamine (TEA) produces another polystyrene-anchored dibasic tetradentate Schiff base, PSCH2-L′H2 (II). BothI andII react with a number of di-, tri-and hexavalent metal ions like Co, Ni, Cu, Zn and Cd to form polystyreneanchored coordination compounds, and these have been characterized and discussed.
