The Type II coagent provided no increase in delta torque for highly unsaturated polymers, perhaps due to the relative ease of allylic hydrogen abstraction from the polymer backbone compared to the vinylic group of the coagent.
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.
