It is clear that aliphatic nitroxyls cannot function effectively in the catalytic CB-A/CB-D cycle (Scheme 1) during mechanodegradation in a sulfur vulcanizate, although they have been shown to be effective mechano-chemical inhibitors in rubbers before vulcanization. Aliphatic nitroxyls appear to be more effective when they contain an additional CB-D function.
