Abstract

Epichlorohydrin (ECH) was polymerized by an activated monomer mechanism (AM) in the presence of 4,4'-azobis(4-cyanopentanol). Spectroscopic and degradation studies showed that polymers obtained via this initiation method contained an azo linkage in the main chain. These prepolymers were employed in the polymerization of styrene (St) to yield block copolymers.
