The effect of LiNTf 2 on the propagation rate coefficient of methyl methacrylate

Noble, Ben; Smith, Leesa; Coote, Michelle


In the present work we use accurate Pulsed Laser Polymerization (PLP) to measure the influence of various concentrations of lithium bis(trifluromethane) sulfonamide (LiNTf2) on the propagation rate coefficient of methyl methacrylate (MMA). We also perform 1H-NMR analysis to evaluate the effect of LiNTf2 on poly(MMA) stereochemistry. Additionally, we perform high-level quantum-chemical calculations to model the interactions between Li+ and the MMA monomer and propagating radical. Across a broad...[Show more]
