Kurze Mitteilungen


Pure liquid vinyl chloride cannot be made to polymerize through heating it up to 110°. In the presence of benzoylperoxide on the contrary polymeres with large molecules are formed by rapid reactions already at low temperatures (20°–50°). In this respect vinyl chloride distinguishes itself from the aromatically substituted ethylenes, which polymerize not only in the presence of peroxide but also in consequence of a purely thermal stimulus.
