Paper Title:
Ring-Opening Polymerization of ε-Caprolactone Using Novel Tin(II) Alkoxide Initiators
  Abstract

Two novel tin(II) alkoxides, namely: tin(II) hexoxide, Sn(OC6H13)2, and tin(II) octoxide, Sn(OC8H17)2, have been synthesized for use as coordination-insertion initiators in the bulk ring-opening polymerization of ε-caprolactone. The kinetics of the polymerization reactions were studied at 140 °C by dilatometry. It was found that both alkoxides were slow to dissolve in the ε-caprolactone monomer due to their molecular aggregation in the solid state. As a result, the slow solubilization of the initiators gave rise to deviations from the expected first-order kinetics. Instead, the kinetic results adhered more closely to zero-order kinetics with apparent zero-order rate constants k0 of 6.58 x 10-2 and 4.63 x 10-2 mol l-1 min-1 for the hexoxide and octoxide respectively
