In this article, the free radical polymerization of acrylates was successfully achieved with a series of twelve push-pull chromophores comprising the N-ethyl carbazole-1-allylidene group as the electron-donating group. Using this strong donor, the resulting dyes, never synthesized before, could efficiently initiate the free radical photopolymerization of acrylates upon mild irradiation conditions e.g. using sunlight. These novel multi-component systems comprising the above mentioned push-pull...[Show more]
