Synthetic polymers have been widely utilized in the art, in view of their excellent properties, in various forms or shapes, for example, filament, fibre, yarn, film, sheet, other molded article, latex and foam. However, these polymers have some drawbacks such as poor light- and heat-stabilities and the like. Stated illustratively, polyolefins and polyurethane elastomers frequently tend to undergo severe deterioration when exposed to light such as sunlight or ultraviolet rays, and polyvinyl chloride and polyvinylidene chloride frequently tend to deteriorate and become colored by the action of light and heat together with elimination of hydrogen chloride therefrom. Polyamides are also frequently subjected to photo-deterioration. For the purpose of stabilizing these synthetic polymers against such deterioration, there have heretofore been proposed in the art a number of stabilizers; for example, for polyolefins, benzotriazole compounds and benzophenone compounds; for polyurethanes, phenol compounds and benzophenone compounds; and for polyvinyl chloride and polyvinylidine chloride, lead salts such as basic lead silicate and tribasic lead maleate, and organotin compounds such as dibutyltin laurate and dibutyltin maleate.

Although such prior stabilizers are known to be considerably satisfactory, there still remained some problems to be improved.

Thus, numerous attempts have been made in the art to find and develop new and more effective stabilizers.

As a result of our extensive studies, it has now been found that the new piperidine derivatives (I) of this invention can be satisfactorily prepared and exhibit a high stabilizing effect against photo- and thermal-deterioration of the synthetic polymers.

It is, accordingly, an object of this invention to provide new and useful piperidine derivatives (I).

Another object is to provide synthetic polymer composition stabilized against the deterioration thereof by having incorporated therein a sufficient amount to prevent the deterioration of at least one of the piperidine derivatives (I).

Other objects of this invention will become apparent to those skilled in the art from the following description.

In one aspect of this invention, the piperidine derivatives (I) are all new substances unknown in the art.

Among the piperidine derivatives (I) of this invention, particularly useful are the piperidine derivatives having the formula (I) wherein

R' represents an alkyl group of 1 to 20 carbon atoms, a hydroxyalkyl group, allyl group, 2-propynyl group, a cyanoalkyl group, an alkoxyalkyl group, an alkenyloxyalkyl group, an aryloxyalkyl group, an alkylthioalkyl group, an epoxyalkyl group, an acyloxyalkyl group, an alkoxycarbonylalkyl group, an aralkyl group, acryloyl group, an acryloyl group which is substituted with alkyl or phenyl, an aralkyloxycarbonyl group, amino group or an amino group which is substituted with aroyl or alkyl;

To a suspension of 22.5 g. of 1,3,8-triaza-7,7,9,9-tetramethyl-spiro[4.5]decane-2,4-dione in 300 ml. of ethanol was added 6.2 g. of potassium hydroxide and the resulting mixture was heated under reflux for 1 hour. After cooling, acetone was added to the reaction mixture, thereby separating crystalline substance, which was then recovered by filtration to give the potassium salt of the above starting material.

To 5 g. of the potassium salt obtained above was added 30 g. of benzyl chloride and the resulting mixture was heated under reflux for 20 hours. After cooling, the reaction mixture was poured into a 10% aqueous solution of sodium hydroxide and crystalline substance so separated was recovered by filtration and recrystallized from benzene to give the desired product as white crystals melting at 262.degree.-263.degree.

EXAMPLE 17

Into 100 parts of polypropylene ["Noblen JHH-G", trade name, available from Mitsui Toatsu Chemicals Inc., Japan, employed after twice recrystallizations from monochlorobenzene] was incorporated 0.25 part of each of the test compounds of this invention indicated below. The resulting mixture was mixed and melted and then molded into a sheet having a thickness of 0.5 mm. under heating and pressure.

As a control, the polypropylene sheet was prepared in a similar manner to that described above without any of stabilizers for comparative purpose.

Then, all of these sheets thus formed were tested for the brittleness time (which means the time, expressed in terms of hour, until the test sheet will become brittle) under ultraviolet ray irradiation at a temperature of 45.degree. C. by means of the fade meter prescribed in Japanese Industrial Standard JIS-1044 entitled "Testing Method of Color Fastness to Light of Dyed Textiles and Dyestuffs", Paragraph 3.8 (in English).

Into 100 parts of polyurethane prepared from polycaprolactone ["E-5080", trade name, available from The Nippon Elastollan Industries Ltd., Japan] was incorporated 0.5 part of each of the test compounds of this invention indicated below. The resulting mixture was heated and melted and then molded into a sheet having a thickness of about 0.5 mm. The sheet thus formed was subjected to the exposure to ultraviolet ray for 15 hours in the fade meter as specified in the above Example 17 at 45.degree. C. and then tested for the retentions of ultimate elongation and ultimate tensile strength as in the above Example 21.

The results are given in the following Table 8.

EXAMPLE 25

Into 100 parts of polyacetal resin ["Delrin 500", trade name, available from Showa Neoprene K. K., Japan] was incorporated 0.5 part of each of the test compounds of this invention indicated below. The resulting mixture was heated and melted at 220.degree. C.

The film thus formed was aged by heating at 222.degree. C. in air for 30 minutes to determine the reduction in weight of the film.
