The general mechanism of the radical polymerization of fluorinated monomers includes six elementary reactions (table 1): (1) the initiation by the homolytic cleavage of a molecule with low thermal stability (usually a peroxide); (2) the chain propagation; (3) the chain transfer to monomer; (4) the chain transfer to polymer; (5) the terminal double bond reaction; and (6) the bimolecular termination (through disproportionation or combination) (ref.
Pincock has begun to obtain a real understanding of the factors that control the competition between homolytic and heterolytic photocleavage of benzylic substrates and is trying to apply these principles to develop synthetically useful procedures.
As a result, peroxide crosslinks provide more thermally stable networks, better heat aging properties, better compression set properties, high-temperature resistance properties compared to that of sulfur crosslinks [6, 7], The most commonly used peroxide curing mechanism for elastomers shown in Scheme 1 consists of three successive steps as follows: (a) homolytic cleavage of the peroxides and generation of free radicals.
This type of bond breaking is known as homolytic cleavage, since the two electrons involved in the bond are separated.
Peroxynitric acid undergoes either homolytic cleavage to form the hydroxyl free radical (OH*) and the nitrogen dioxide free radical ([N[O.
This would be possible with a peroxide homolytic cleavage while the material is still solid, avoiding the oxyradicals to move away from one another, probably in hydroxyl form.
The rate-determining step of the consecutive reactions, peroxide [right arrow] alkoxy radical [right arrow] polymer chain radical, is the homolytic cleavage of the peroxide.
Homolytic cleavage of each peroxide bond (--0--0--) in the APS provides two S[O.
Homolytic cleavage (free-radical mechanism) is the breakage of a single bond (two electrons) leaving one of the electrons on each of the fragments.
