A series of substituted styrenes were polymerized by controlled/“living” radical polymerization using atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP), in order to correlate monomer structures with polymerization rate. The effect of substituents is discussed with regard to the Hammett equation. The results show that most of the monomers can polymerize in a controlled way by ATRP; i.e., the apparent polymerization rate is first order with respect to monomer concentration, and molecular weight… CONTINUE READING
