The reactivities of hydrocarbon, the radical reactions through the allylic radicals, the results of model compound vulcanization, and the cross-link structures of vulcanizates are comprehensively reviewed and discussed to understand the main reaction for accelerated sulfur vulcanization. Through this review, the author's view on the main mechanism and cross-linking structure for accelerated sulfur vulcanization are discussed.
