Abstract

The kinetics of the polymerisation of vinyl acetate in the presence of solvents has been studied. Azobis isobutyronitrile has been used as photoinitiator. As little as 5% of benzene lowers the rate of polymerisation of vinyl acetate to about one-half its value in the absence of benzene. For the polymerisation of vinyl acetate alone and of various benzene/vinyl acetate mixtures the rates of polymerisation, molecular weights and chain transfer constants over the temperature range 25-60
