N-Aryl glycines as versatile initiators for various polymerizations

Lai, Haiwang; Zhu, Di; Peng, Xiaotong; Zhang, Jing; Lalevée, J.; Xiao, Pu


The design and development of versatile initiators for various types of polymerization reactions, i.e. thermal-/photo-crosslinked/controlled polymerizations, is highly interesting to fabricate high-performance polymer materials. Herein, we synthesized two N-aryl glycine-based initiators, N-(1-naphthyl)glycine (NNG) and N-(1-pyrenyl)glycine (NPYG), and investigated their ability to trigger thermal- or light-induced polymerizations. Relevant photochemical mechanisms to generate reactive species...[Show more]
