Polymerization of Methyl Methacrylate with Phenylsilane

The bulk thermal and photopolymerization of methyl methacrylate(MMA) with phenylsilane were performed to produce poly(MMA)s containing phenylsilyl moiety presumably as an end group. It was found for both thermal and photopolymerization that while the polymerization yields and polymer molecular weights decreased as the relative phenylsilane concentration increases, the TGA residue yields and the relative intensities of SiH IR stretching bands increased with increasing molar ratio of phenylsilane over MMA. The polymerization yield, molecular weight, and TGA residue yield for the thermal polymerization were higher than those for the photopolymerization. Thus, the phenylsilane seemed to significantly influence on the polymerization as both chain initiation and chain transfer agents. However, an appreciable silane effect was not observed on the thermal and photopolymerization of 4-vinylpyridine, acrylonitrile, styrene, and vinyltrimethoxysilane.
