Abstract

A variety of mono-, di-, and multifunctional 1-propenyl ethers were readily prepared in high yields by the condensation of alcohols with allyl halides followed by the base or transition metal catalyzed rearrangement of the resulting allyl ethers. These monomers in general display very high reactivity in cationic polymerizations. In our work, we have focused on photoinduced cationic polymerizations of these monomers using diaryliodonium and triarylsulfonium salt photoinitiators. To study these very fast photopolymerizations, extensive use of differential photoscanning calorimetry and real-time infrared spectroscopy were made. Employing these techniques, the effects of monomer and photoinitiator structure on the rates of polymerization were studied.
