Abstract: Zinc soaps of rubber seed oil (RSO) and epoxidised rubber seed oil (ERSO) were prepared and their use as PVC stabilizers investigated. Characterization of Zn soaps of RSO prepared by different techniques and ERSO gave information on the purity, structure and thermal behaviour of these materials. From the analysis, the production of these materials for use in thermal stabilization of PVC would be optimized as their use greatly enhanced the stability of PVC as obtained from the conductivity measurements using the 763 PVC Thermomat. The minimum amount of HCl release was obtained for the samples with Zn soaps and ERSO indicating a synergistic effect. Zn soaps having Zn(OH)2 stabilized PVC better than pure Zn soaps.
