Radical Polymerization of Methyl Methacrylate in the Presence of Nitrogen Compound

The influence of the 1,3,5-trimethyl-hexahydro-1,3,5-triazine (TMT) on the radical polymerization of methyl methacrylate (MMA) was studied. The kinetic parameters were obtained (reaction orders and activation energy of polymerization). It is established that the triazine is the slight chain transfer during to polymerization initiated by azobisisobutyronitrile (AIBN) and the component of initiating system if the peroxide initiator is used. Polymers synthesized in the presence of TMT have the higher content of sindio and isotactic sequences in macromolecule.
