Synthesis and Study of Methacrylic Monomers and Polymers on the Basis of Aurones
The hydroxyaurones were synthesized by condensation of benzofuran-3-one with hydroxybenzaldehydes, and then new methacrylic monomers were obtained. The kinetics of radical thermo-initiated homopolymerization of new monomers by dilatometric method in 10% solutions of DMF was investigated. The intra-chain stabilizing effect of aurone derivatives, on the destruction of polystyrene, has been investigated. It has been established that the applications of the studied additives with covalent introduction significantly inhibit the process of its degradation in comparison with industrial polystyrene produced by Styron (Switzerland).
