Synthesis and characterization poly (5-indanyl methacrylate-co-ethyl methacrylate)
The copolymer (5-IndanylMethacrylate-co-Ethylmethacrylate) is synthesised by the reaction of free radical Solution polymerisation at 70°C using Benzoyl Peroxide. The copolymer is characterised by NMR and IR Spectroscopy. The solubility of the polymers was tested in various polar and non-polar solvents. The Thermal Properties of the copolymer has been determined by means of Differential Scanning Calorimetry Analysis (DSC) and Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). Thus, the thermal stability of copolymer increases with a decrease of Ethylmethacrylate content in the copolymer.
