Three samples containing grafted primary, secondary and tertiary monoamines (pMono, sMono and tMono) as well as a triamine-grafted material (TRI) with both primary and secondary amines were exposed to flowing air at 120 °C for 30-40 h. It was found that pMono and tMono were stable as evidenced by CO 2 adsorption measurements as well as infrared and NMR data, whereas sMono and TRI adsorbents exhibited extensive deactivation. Infrared data showed the development of an absorption band at 1665-1680 cm-1 whose intensity increased with the degree of oxidative degradation. However, only minor changes occurred in the corresponding 13C CP/MAS NMR spectra. The findings were discussed, and a tentative explanation was provided.
