Title: GAMMA RADIATION INDUCED HOMOGENEOUS PHASE VINYL POLYMERIZATION: A NEW TECHNIQUE YIELDS NOVEL KINETIC DATA

Abstract

ABS>The radioinduced polymerization of pure styrene was chosen to study the role of water in the processes. The styrene was distilled, dried over silica gel, collected in pre-baked glassware, degassed, and sealed off at less thand 10/ sup -5/ mm of Hg pressure. Data on the polymerization were compared to data for samples in which no great pains were taken to remove the last traces of water. It was found that purity and dryness lead to much higher rates of polymerization at all temperatures studied. (M.C.G.)
