High molar mass polymers by cationic polymerisation in emulsion and miniemulsion

Author affiliations

Abstract

The generation of poly(p-methoxystyrene) with a molar mass of several thousand g mol−1 by cationic polymerisation in emulsion, is described here for the first time. Such a striking result was achieved by carrying out the polymerisation inside monomer droplets, thus preventing fast transfer reactions with water.
