Abstract

Plasma initiated polymerization and copolymerization is applied to two model compounds, styrene and methylmethacrylate, in a series of experiments. For this polymerization tubes with break seals in the middle having two different compartments are used. For samples without and with break seals-the latter is broken right after discharge-a random copolymer rich product; while for the others with break seals broken after certain times, a block copolymer is obtained, as traced out by NMR and IR studies.
