Photopolymerization of well-defined polyisobutylene-based macromonomers with acrylate, methacrylate, or vinyl ether end groups generates useful polymeric networks. The kinetics of photocrosslinking were measured using an optical pyrometer apparatus. The rates of photopolymerization were manipulated and optimized with respect to different experimental parameters. Analysis of photopolymerized networks by attenuated total reflectance-Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy indicated nearly complete end group double bond conversion. A similar conclusion was reached from solvent extraction studies.
