n0], in place of the actual value of 19,760 g/mol, to account for the lower initial torque), which can be associated with the esterolysis reaction of PEN.
The rate constants of the different transreactions investigated can be qualitatively ranked as follows: aminolysis (with aliphatic amines, either primary and secondary) > alcoholysis (with aliphatic alcohols) [approximately equal to] hydrolysis > acidolysis (with aromatic acids) > acidolysis (with aliphatic acids) [much greater than] aminolysis (with aromatic amines) > alcoholysis (with phenols) [much greater than] esterolysis.
On the contrary, the experiments done by adding B into PET showed that esterolysis reactions are much slower.
