Azo polymers — syntheses and reactions

6. Grafting of polycarbonates
  • Oskar Nuyken
  • Ulrich Presenz


Azo group containing polycarbonates were used as initiators for the polymerization of methyl methacrylate. The grafting reaction was characterized by the terms: grafting success Ug, grafting efficiency ɛ and degree of grafting π. The effect of the monomer and initiator concentration on these terms is discussed in detail. The number of grafted sidearms is determined by complete hydrolysis of the polycarbonate backbone.
