Title

Ultrasonically Initiated Free Radical Catalyzed Polymerizations: Poly(styrenecomaleic Anhydride)

Abstract

An ultrasonically initiated, free radical catalyzed polymerization process was developed where variable amounts of initiator, the acoustic intensity and the reaction time were evaluated. 1-Dodecanethiol is a special initiator for the ultrasonic system. The argon gas bubbling is important in the ultrasonic polymerization. For the ultrasonic polymerization of styrene and maleic anhydride, when the amount of the initiator increases, the molecular weight decreases and the conversion decreases. As the power intensity increases, the conversion increases.
