Mesolytic Versus Homolytic Cleavage in Photochemical Nitroxide-Mediated Polymerization
Time-dependent density functional theory calculations have been performed to study the photocleavage reactions of chromophore-functionalized alkoxyamines in nitroxide-mediated photopolymerization. Two case studies were considered: azaphenalene derivatives and benzophenone-based alkoxyamines. For the azaphenalenes, we show that the expected homolysis pathway is actually inaccessible. Instead, these alkoxyamines exhibit low-lying nNπ* excited states that exhibit an electronic structure about...[Show more]
