Abstract : The photo-degradation rate constant and surface morphology of poly(vinyl chloride), upon irradiation with an ultraviolet light were investigated in the presence of Schiff bases as photostabilizers. Poly(vinyl chloride) photo-degradation rate constant was lower for the films containing Schiff bases (5.0–9.0 × 104 sec1) compared to the blank film (12.6 × 103 sec1). In addition, the surface morphology of the irradiated poly(vinyl chloride) containing Schiff bases, examined by scanning electron microscopy, indicates that the surface was much smoother compared to the blank film.
