Photopolymerization of Methacrylic Acid with Secondary Silanes
Hee-Gweon Woo*, Sun-Hee Park, Lan-Young Hong, Soo-Yeon Yang, Haeng-Goo Kang, Heui-Suk Ham
The bulk photopolymerization of methacrylic acid (MA) with secondary silanes such as PhMeSiH2 and Ph2SiH2 gave poly(MA)s possessing the secondary silyl moiety presumably as an end group. It was found that while the polymerization yields and intrinsic viscosities decreased, the TGA residue yields and the relative intensities of SiH IR stretching bands increased with increasing mole ratio of the secondary silane over MA. The sterically less bulky silane PhMeSiH2 produced poly(MA)s with somewhat higher molecular weights and with similar TGA residue yields compared with the sterically bulkier silane Ph2SiH2. The secondary silanes seem to significantly influence on the photopolymerization of MA as both chain initiation and chain transfer agents.
