Özet

In the present study, it has been demonstrated that polymers containing pendant hydroxyl groups can undergo photoinduced crosslinking upon irradiation in the presence of bifunctional benzodioxinone. Irradiation of the copolymers of 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) and methyl methacrylate (MMA) in dichloromethane ant THF solutions or in films containing bisbenzo-dioxinone, namely 5-[9-(4-oxo-2, 2-diphenyl-4H-benzo-[d][1,3]dioxin-5-yloxy) nonyloxy]-2,2-diphenyl-4H-benzo[d][1,3]dioxin-4-one resulted in the formation of insoluble networks. Model studies using monofunctional napthodioxinone, namely 7-hydroxy-2,.2-diphenyl-4H-naphtho[2,3-d][1.3]dioxin-4-one, revealed that crosslinking occurs via iinterchain ester formation between photochemically generated keten intermediates and pendant hydroxyl groups.
