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 ...
