The effect of vinyl benzyl chloride on emulsion polymerization of styrene

Abstract : Polystyrene latexes were prepared, in the presence of, vinyl benzyl chloride (VBC) monomer. These particles were synthesized in surfactant-free batch radical emulsion polymerization of styrene and VBC monomer mixture, with 2,2'azobis(2-amidino propane)di-hydrochloride (V50) initiator. The polymerization kinetics was found to be rapid, as a function of VBC monomer concentration in the polymerization recipe. It is interesting to notice that high VBC amount leads to marked coagulum formation. The final hydrodynamic particle size was found to be slightly sensitive to the VBC concentration in the investigated range. The presence of VBC at the surface of the particles was investigated by XPS analysis.
