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 ...
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 ...
