Michael addition polymers from bisacetoacetates

II. 2,2-dimethyl-1,3-bis(acetoacetyl)-propanediol andN,N′-bis(acetoacetyl)-1,4-piperazine
  • David L. Trumbo


The Michael reaction was used to synthesize polymers from bisacetoacetyl esters and amides and a diacrylate. The reaction occurred readily at room temperature yielding semi-solid polymers with broad molecular weight distributions which narrowed as the reaction progressed. The polymers based on the amide had lower molecular weights than those based on the ester.
