Atom-transfer radical polymerizations of 2-(2-bromopropionyloxy)ethyl acrylate (BPEA) and 4-(2-bromopropionyloxy)butyl acrylate (BPBA) provided hyperbranched polyacrylates (HPEA and HPBA, respectively) in this study. The rate of polymerization of BPEA was faster than that of BPBA and the degree of branching of HPEA was higher than that of HPBA under the same reaction conditions. The degree of branching (DB) of the hyperbranched polyacrylates was enhanced in the presence of acetone or methanol… CONTINUE READING
