Abstract

Three component photoinitiator systems containing N-substituted maleimide/ketocoumarin/tertiary amine have been used for the visible light photopolymerization of acrylate and thiol-ene monomers. Thin-film calorimetry studies were conducted. The polymerization exotherms of these systems with the blue (470 nm) and cyan (505 nm) LED light sources show that the multicomponent initiator package is an effective system for visible light polymerization of acrylate and thiol-ene monomers. Exotherms of a visible light initiator combination of camphorquinone/amine were recorded for comparison purposes. (c) 2006 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
