Abstract

The photoinitiated free-radical polymerization of methyl methacrylate (MMA) and the radical-promoted cationic polymerization of cyclohexene oxide (CHO) in the presence of low-molecular-weight polyepichlorohydrin terminated with groups containing benzoin derivatives were studied. Benzoin-terminated polyepichlorohydrin was prepared by Activated Monomer (AM) polymerization. Upon photolysis, polymer-bound alkoxy benzyl radicals were generated, initiating the radical polymerization of MMA. In the case of radical-promoted cationic polymerization of CHO, the cationic initiating species were formed by the oxidation of photochemically generated polymeric radicals by N-ethoxy-2-methylpyridinium hexafluorophosphate.
