Macromolecular Compounds and Polymeric Materials


The radical copolymerization of norbornene with norbornenyl acrylate or bornyl acrylate has been studied. New copolymers containing norbornane moieties in the side chain were produced. The influence of the reaction conditions on the composition, molecular weight characteristics, and glass transition temperature of the copolymers was studied. It was established that copolymers of norbornene with norbornenyl acrylate or bornyl acrylate have high transparency (95–97%) in the visible region (400–800 nm) and glass transition temperature. They effectively stabilize semiconductor nanoparticles, which allows these new copolymers to be considered as promising materials for optoelectronics.
