Abstract

Cross-linking of polymers is frequently presumed to enhance the thermal stability of polymer systems. Methyl methacrylate has been reacted with divinylbenzene and styrene with various dimethacrylates. These systems have been characterized by gel content, swelling ratio, infrared spectroscopy, thermal analysis, TGA/FT-IR, and solid state NMR. Both systems show enhanced thermal stability and char formation. This is most pronounced in the cases of methyl methacrylate with divinylbenzene and styrene with bisphenol A dimethacrylate.
