Azo polymers — syntheses and reactions

5. Azo group containing polycarbonates — synthesis, characterization and initiator properties

  • 58 Accesses

  • 5 Citations

Summary

Polycarbonates containing different amounts of thermolabile azo functions have been synthesized. The resulting polymeric initiators have been used to start the polymerization of methyl methacrylate. The kinetic results are explained on the basis of a high degree of termination reactions by primary radicals.
