The need for stability and durability is a crucial aspect in the world of polymer science and material chemistry. Scientists and manufacturers continuously address and work on finding the true potential of antioxidants, a versatile stabilizing agent used for applications from polymer manufacturing to various food packaging strategies.

Let us elaborate on the chemical makeup, applications and array of benefits of antioxidants, thereby offering insights into why it is an integral component in various industries.

Chemical Composition and Structure

As an organophosphate compound, Antioxidant 1010 is more formally known as Pentaerythritol tetrakis(3-(3,5-di-tert-butyl-4-hydroxyphenyl) propionate). The white crystalline powder is soluble in organic solvents like toluene and dichloromethane. It is a sterically hindered phenol, and its structure possesses outstanding antioxidative properties.

Mechanism of Action 

The oxidation of other substances like polymers and various organic materials undergo delay or prevention due to the presence of Antioxidants. A chain of destructive reactions occurs because of oxidation, resulting in the breakdown of the substance.

By donating phenolic hydrogen atoms to free radicals, the hindered phenol neutralizes them and interrupts the chain reactions, leading to oxidation. This function enhances the thermal stability of the material used by manufacturers.
