New monomer for hydrophobic acrylic copolymers and their novel properties
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2006-12)
The synthesis and characterization of a new tertiary alcohol (2-octyl-2-dodecanol) and “bushy-tailed”, hydrophobic acrylic monomer (2-octyl-dodecyl acrylate) from a 1-decene dimer (2-octyl-1-dodecene) precursor that was ...
Atom transfer radical polymerisation of unusual monomers
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2003-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Controlled free radical polymerisation techniques offer several practical and theoretical advantages compared to many other polymerisation techniques. Living polymerisation techniques such as anionic ...
Investigation of the copolymerization of butyl acrylate (BA) with vinyl neononanoate (VeoVA-9)
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2006-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This study has the goal of illuminating structure-properties relationships for copolymers of vinyl neononanoate (VeoVa-9) and butyl acrylate (BA). The VeoVa-9/BA copolymers were prepared using solution ...
