Novel ketone derivatives based photoinitiating systems for free radical polymerization under mild conditions and 3D printing

Abstract : Photopolymerization of acrylates under mild conditions is promising for not only academic research, but also for industrialization applications. However, it still remains a huge challenge to develop effective photoinitiators or photoinitiating systems for the free radical polymerization of acrylates upon visible light-emitting diode (LED) irradiation. In this work, twelve novel ketone derivatives containing either tertiary amines or anthracenes as peripheral substituting groups (noted as Ami-1~Ami-6 and Anth-1~Anth-6) were elaborately synthesized and proposed for the polymerization of di(trimethylolpropane) tetraacrylate (TA), a tetrafunctional polyether acrylate, in both thin and thick films conditions under the LED@405 nm irradiation. In combination with an amine and an iodonium salt (Iod), these ketones could form distinct three-component photoinitiating systems, among which the Ami-2/amine/Iod system could lead to the highest final conversion of acrylates in the thick film (~1.4 mm) condition while Ami-6/amine/Iod system could induce the highest final conversion of acrylates in the thin film (~25 μm) condition. Photosensitivity of Ami-2 and Ami-6 was systematically investigated by the steady state photolysis and fluorescence quenching experiments. Finally, photocuring 3D printing technique was applied to TA, and both Ami-2 and Ami-6 based photoinitiating systems could be used to fabricate macroscopically tridimensional patterns with excellent spatial resolution.
