Photoinitiated polymerization reactions: Application of a new real-time FTIR system for following the rate of polymerization

By Grant Bradley, R. Stephen Davidson, G.J. Howgate, C.G.J. Mouillat and P.J. Turner


During the development of a technique whereby the progress of cure in a photoinitiated polymerization reaction can be monitored by IR spectroscopy, a Fourier transform IR (FTIR) microscope was adapted to enable curing to be carried out on the microscope stage. Preliminary results are reported illustrating the effectiveness of the development for the observation of polymerization in acrylate, dioxolane and polymerizable liquid crystal systems
