Polymer Synthesis of Polystyrene and Nylon-6,6
The first example of the successful synthesis of hybrid nanoparticles using multifunctional silica initiators in a miniemulsion ATRP was disclosed a decade ago. The reaction was driven to higher conversion in a shorter time. (27) This success with miniemulsion relies on the compartmentalization of the reaction media which segregates the reaction medium and therefore minimizes the effect of radical termination and macroscopic gelation. (28) Since termination reactions should be limited to individual droplets the proportion of terminated chains should be relatively small and the degree of crosslinking is less than in bulk conditions. The confinement effect increases the deactivation rate and termination rate so control is better but reaction rate is also decreased.

AB - Synthesis of 3-triisopropylsilyloxy-1-propyllithium (TIPSOPrLi) and the characterization of its activity in anionic styrene polymerizations at 40 °C in cyclohexane was reported. The TIPSOPrLi initiator was used to prepare α-hydroxypoly(styrene) in cyclohexane with narrower polydispersity. The results show that the polydispersity index for TIPSO-PS is higher than the measured polydispersity indices for the TIPSO-PS samples with M n≥6.8kg/mol. The narrower molecular weight distribution of the TIPSO-PS is due to an increase in the rate of styrene initiation an the enhanced initiation state is due to a reduction in intermolecular association. 13% of degree of functionality values (Fn) of 1.0 for all the polyesterene samples reveal that TIPS group is present on each polyesterene chains.
