Certain Type II coagents, containing extractable allylic hydrogens, have been shown to participate in intramolecular cyclization reactions, as well as intermolecular propagation reactions (ref.
However, at normal use levels, an aromatic oil, which can contain a significant concentration of benzylic and allylic hydrogen atoms, will have a significant effect.
For this reason, peroxides will preferentially crosslink at the allylic hydrogen sites associated with the ENB monomer.
The high number of allylic hydrogens and double bonds per molecule associated with these unsaturated poly(vinyl ether)s results in relatively fast curing by autoxidation due to the gel-point being reached at relatively low extents of reaction.
