This work presents fundamental aspects of material resistance to environmental conditions, including number of atmospheric conditions and biosphere. These areas for many years have been important research topics in the Division of Chemical Technology and Polymer Chemistry of the Faculty of Chemistry, Opole University – the research involves studies on photo-, thermo- and biodegradation of materials, mainly polymer materials. The complexity of such studies allows to determine lifetime of products manufactured from studied materials under the conditions corresponding to their potential area of application. The growing interest in obtaining and manufacturing new types of materials is a result of their application for manufacturing of various, useful products exploited under various conditions. These conditions, depending on their type, intensity and exposure time, cause diverse changes in the material, and that...
