  • Tertiary octyl, decyl, dodecyl, and hexadecyl mercaptans were investigated as modifiers in GR-S polymerizations.The rate of disappearance of these modifiers followed a first-order rate equation during the first half of the polymerization, in accordance with the theory of chain-transfer reactions. During the latter part of the reaction, an increased rate of disappearance generally occurred. A mechanism is suggested.The rate of disappearance increased with decreasing chain-length of the mercaptan… CONTINUE READING
