Abstract

Cationic ring opening polymerization of 2-ethyl-2-oxazoline (EtOx) has been performed using α–bromoisobutyryl bromide (tertiary) and 2-bromopropionyl bromide (secondary) as initiators in acetonitrile. The reaction kinetics have been followed and selected P(EtOx) polymers have been used as macroinitiators for the single electron transfer living radical polymerization (SET-LRP) of methyl acrylate (MA), ethylene glycol methyl ether acrylate and 2-(dimethylamino)ethyl methacrylate. Moreover, the effect of solvent and catalyst concentration have been investigated on the SET-LRP of P(EtOx) initiated MA.
