Abstract

A new macromonomeric peroxyinitiator (MMPI) was synthesized by the reaction of polytetrahydrofurandiol (p-THF-diol), M(w) 1000), isophorone diisocyanate, 2,5-dimethylhexyl-2,5-dihydroperoxide and 2-isocyanatoethyl methacrylate. Homopolymerization of MMPI at 80 degrees C gave crosslinked polytetrahydrofuran (poly-THF) with swelling ratios in CHCl3 varying between 1.4 and 4.2.
