Aromatic Structure Influence on the Selectivity of Substituted Methacryloylaminophenylmethacrylates Free-Radical Polymerization

L. O. Vretik, O. A. Nikolaeva, V. V. Zagniy, V. G. Syromyatnikov


A new dimethacrylic monomer with biphenylbenzoate-type aromatic core was tested to the possibility to carry out its selective homopolymerization under conditions of thermoinitiated radical polymerization in DMF solution. The kinetics of thermo-induced radical homopolymerization of this monomer as well as some model compounds were studied by dilatometry. The preferring polymerization of O-methacryloyl double bond was proved by 1H NMR spectroscopy.
