Application of a Novel Initiator on Acrylic Emulsion Polymerization
New initiator of FFM6 is used to initiate the acrylic emulsion polymerization. The influences of concentration of FFM6 (c[I]) and polymerization temperature (T) on polymerization reaction rate (Rp) were discussed. Rp is proportional to (c[I])1.4 which is different with classical emulsion polymerization whose Rp is proportion to (c[I])0.4, that indicate polymerization mechanism of the reaction in the study is different with classical mechanism. The value of Ea, 56.4 kJ/mol, is lower than the value of general radical polymerization’s Ea (80.0-96.0 kJ/mol), which indicates the FFM6 can initiate acrylic emulsion polymerization at a lower temperature compared with the other kinds of initiator.
