Structural changes under the action of an electric field in high density polyethylene (PE) and a nanocomposite have been measured by infrared spectroscopy, viscometry, and differential thermal analysis. Destruction of macromolecules occurs under the action of an electric field. As a result, with the formation of C=C groups, the molecular weight decreases. After exposure to an electric field, the depolymerization temperature of the nanocomposite changes less than that of pure polyethylene.
