Epub 2009 Nov 3.The auto-initiated high temperature acrylate polymerization represents a versatile route for the synthesis of macromonomer building blocks. Various macromonomers were synthesized via this route based on methyl, ethyl, n-butyl, t-butyl, 2-ethylhexyl, isobornyl and 2-[[(butylamino)carbonyl]oxy]ethyl acrylate. The synthesis requires a temperature of 140 °C and is carried out in a 5 wt.-% solution of hexyl acetate. Read More
