Abstract

The radical homopolymerisation of 2-trifluoromethacrylic acid (MAF) initiated by Na2S2O8 in water, under the influence of pH, led to original water soluble surfactants, the decomposition of which was investigated. The value of the square of the propagation rate constant to the termination rate constant, kp2/kte, of MAF was 4 × 10−3 l mol−1 s−1 at 80 °C.
