Abstract

New difunctional methacrylate monomers containing beta heteroatoms have been synthesized from alpha-hydroxymethylacrylate esters or alpha-chloromethylacryloyl chloride. These monomers are more reactive than their alkane counterparts (e.g., ethacrylates), giving polymers with molecular weights comparable to poly(itaconate)s. The simple synthetic approach described allows a wide range of difunctionalized acrylate monomers to be produced. Variations in both ester and ether substituents were explored for ease of synthesis and polymerization.
