Abstract

Summary: Novel surface-active monomers and initiators were synthesized by successive treatment of cumylsuccinic anhydride with 3-tert-butylperoxy-3-methyl-1- butanol or poly(propylene glycol) acrylate and 1,3-propane sultone with triethylamine. The surface tension isotherms on the air-water solution interface were obtained. The critical micelle concentrations (cmc) as well as the surface tension at the cmc were determined for these substances. The complex thermal analysis of the obtained inisurf was carried out and the possible mechanism of decomposition of its peroxide group was proposed. The synthesized compounds were shown to be suitable reactive surfactants for obtaining styrene latexes.
