Photopolymerization of Methyl Methacrylate with Disilanes
Hee-Gweon Woo*, Lan-Young Hong, Jin-Young Park, Young-Tae Jeong, Hyoung-Ryun Park, Heui-Suk Ham
The bulk photopolymerization of methyl methacrylate (MMA) with disilanes such as 1,2-diphenyldisilane and 2-phenyl-1,3-disilapropane was carried out to yield poly(MMA)s containing the corresponding disilyl moiety presumably as an end group. It was found that while the polymerization yields and the polymer molecular weights decreased as the relative disilane concentration increased, the TGA residue yields and the relative intensities of SiH IR stretching bands increased with increment of molar ratio of disilane over MMA. The photopolymerization of MMA with 2-phenyl-1,3-disilapropane produced higher-molecular-weight polymer with lower TGA residue yield when compared to the photopolymerization of MMA with 1,2-diphenyldisilane. The disilanes seemed to significantly influence on the photopolymerization as both chain initiation and chain transfer agents.
