Abstract

Liquid natural rubber LNR is a depolymerized natural rubber NR which consists of shorter polymeric chains and lower molecular weight . Hydrogenated LNR HLNR was synthesized via the thermal decomposition of p-toluenesulfonyl hydrazide TSH or 2,4,6-trimethylbenzenesulfonyl hydrazide MSH. The LNR and HLNR structures were characterized by Fourier-transform infrared FTIR and nuclear magnetic resonance NMR spectroscopies. The percentage of hydrogenation was calculated from NMR spectrum. The optimum percentage of hydrogenation >90% was achieved by manipulating the reaction parameters such as sources of diimide, TSH concentration, solvent, and reaction time. The optimum condition was 3 : 1 weight ratio of TSH-LNR in o-xylene at 130°C in 4-hour reaction period.
