This new benzoin derivative performed significantly better in photo-polymerization experiments of bulk solutions or films of acrylate monomers than the unsubstituted benzoin, a popular photoinitiator. Studies suggest that a slow α-cleavage mechanism from the electronic triplet state with a quantum yield of 0.1 is the primary photoreaction to generate the initiating free radicals.
