Özet

A novel one-component type II polymeric photoinitiator, poly(vinyl alcohol)-thioxanthone (PVA-TX), is synthesized by a simple acetalization process and characterized. PVA-TX enables photopolymerization of methyl methacrylate and acrylamide in both organic and aqueous media. Photopolymerization proceeds even in the absence of a co-initiator since PVA-TX possesses both chromophoric and hydrogen donating sites in the structure.
