Controlled synthesis of crosslinked polyamide 6 using a bis-monomer derived from cyclized lysine

Abstract : The controlled synthesis of polyamide 6 chemical networks by anionic ring-opening copolymerization of epsilon-caprolactam (CL) with synthesized bis-epsilon-caprolactam derived from alpha-amino-epsilon-caprolactam, i.e. N-functionalized alpha-amino-epsilon-caprolactam bis-monomers, using sodium epsilon-caprolactamate as an initiator and hexamethylene-1,6-dicarbamoylcaprolactam as di-functional fast activator was examined in bulk at 140 degrees C. An urea-based bis-monomer and CL were first shown to copolymerize with a decreasing polymerization rate due to side reactions. On the contrary, quantitative copolymerization of CL with various amounts of bis-N(2-oxo-3-azepanyl)-1,6-tetramethylenediamide, an amide-based bis-monomer, leads to fast kinetics similar to the homopolymerization of CL Crosslinked PA6 with network exhibiting elastic or viscoelastic behaviors, depending on the amount of crosslinker, were observed and characterized by swelling in hexafluoroisopropanol, dynamic mechanical analysis and rheology measurements. Crystallinity and swelling were shown to decrease with the increasing content of the crosslinking agent.
