Abstract

Redox-initiated free-radical polymerization of methyl methacrylate (MMA) and acrylamide (AAm) with poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) using Mn(III) as reduction agent was carried out to yield PMMA-block-PEG-block-PMMA and AAm-block-PEG-block-AAm triblock copolymers. The principal parameters (concentration of the reactants, temperature) affecting the synthesis were examined. Block copolymers were characterized by H-1-NMR and infrared spectroscopy.
