                         polyacrylonitrile mats and to investigate how oxidation and 
                         cyclization reactions are affected by rate, temperature, and time 
                         in an oxidative environment. Cyclization indexes were estimated by 
                         a simple methodology based on differential scanning calorimetry 
                         (DSC) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy data. Values of

                         C\N and C\N bonds were used on calculation. The 
                         statistical planning applied in this study was important to show 
                         that not always longest treatment is effective to stabilize

                         cyclization indexes near to 90%, both from DSC and Fourier 
                         transform infrared spectroscopy techniques, reduced weight loss in 
                         thermogravimetric analysis and O/C ratio higher than 10% by X-ray
