Attempts to prepare block or graft copolymers of isobutylene rubbers by radiation in the presence of methyl methacrylate gave low yields of copolymer with only 20% of the rubber entering into the copolymer. The remainder of the rubber is degraded during the process. A single experiment describes the graft copolymerization of methyl methacrylate with ethylene–propylene rubber in which 45% of the rubber is copolymerized.
