Solid-state polymerization of 1-ethynyl-1-cyclohexanol was carried out by irradiation in vacuum and in open air at 20-degrees-C. Radiation-induced polymerization was also done in a benzene solution. The products were mixtures of oligomers and polymers. IR, NMR, UV, and x-ray investigations showed the initial formation of trimer, oligomer, and polymer. The polymer fraction increased with an increase of conversion. Electroinitiated polymerization gave soluble and insoluble fractions. The soluble fraction was an ether. However, the results were not reproducible. No polymers were obtained with n-butyllithium and borontrifluoride etherate as chemical catalysts.

POLYMERIZATION OF 4-VINYL-1-CYCLOHEXENE BY RADIATION AND CHEMICAL CATALYSTS
CEVIK, NN; Usanmaz, Ali (Informa UK Limited, 1993-01-01)
4-Vinyl-1-cyclohexene was polymerized by radiation at room temperature under vacuum and in atmospheric air. The change of percent conversion with irradiation time is almost linear up to limiting conversion, but it is S-type in atmospheric air. It was shown that the mechanism of polymerization is most probably ionic rather than free-radical. The cationic polymerization was carried out in dichloromethane solution at -8-degrees-C using BF3(C2H5)2O as catalyst. The nature of the polymer obtained was investigate...
Topotactic solid-state polymerization of acenaphtylene by radiation
Usanmaz, Ali; Baytar, N (Informa UK Limited, 1998-01-01)
The radiation-induced solid-state polymerization of acenaphthylene was carried out under vacuum at room temperature. The monomer and obtained polymer samples were investigated by UV, FTIR, DSC, TG, and powder X-ray diffraction methods to characterize the polymer and elucidate the polymerization mechanism. The polymer samples were crystalline with melting points ranging in 380-390 degrees C interval. Polymerization takes place through vinyl groups by a radical mechanism and crystal structure of monomer and p...
Topotactic solid-state polymerization of 3-aminocrotonamide by radiation
Usanmaz, Ali; Melad, OK (Wiley, 1996-04-30)
Radiation-induced solid-state polymerization of 3-aminocrotonamide (3-amino-2-butenamide) was carried out at room temperature, in open air atmosphere and under vacuum condition. The polymer obtained was white powder, soluble in methanol, but insoluble in water. The nature of polymers were investigated by IR, UV, x-ray, DP-MS, and elemental analysis to elucidate the mechanism of the polymerization. The polymer was crystalline with melting point in the range of 245-255 degrees C. The cell parameters and space...
Crystal structure effect in radiation induced solid state polymerization of methacrylamide
Usanmaz, Ali; Kafadar, AB (Informa UK Limited, 2004-01-01)
Radiation induced solid state polymerization of methacrylamide was carried out, opened to atmosphere and under vacuum conditions at room temperature. The white colored powder polymers obtained were insoluble in most common organic solvents such as carbon tetrachloride, dimethysulfoxide, acetone, etc. The polymers were characterized by IR, direct pyrolysis mass spectrometer (DP-MS), XRD, TGA, and DSC methods. The mechanism of the polymerization was elucidated from these results. There were no definite effect...
Polystyrene-organoclay nanocomposites prepared by melt intercalation, in situ, and Masterbatch methods
Yılmazer, Ülkü; Ozden, G (Wiley, 2006-06-01)
In this study, polystyrene (PS)/montmorillonite nanocomposites were prepared by melt intercalation, in situ polymerization, and masterbatch methods. In the masterbatch method, as the first step, a high clay content composite of PS-organoclay (masterbatch) was prepared by in situ polymerization, and then the prepared masterbatch was diluted to desired compositions with commercial PS in a twin-screw extruder. The structure and mechanical properties of the nanocomposites were examined. X-ray diffraction (XRD) ...
