It is apparent from this work that he has made valuable contributions to the theory and practice of polymers-aging and development of new stabilizers for polymers, organization of their industrial production, life-time predictions for use and storage, and the mechanisms of oxidation, ozonolysis, hydrolysis, biodegradation, and decreasing of polymer flammability.
