Paper Abstract

Fluorescence properties of the methyl methacrylate solutions of two kinds of aromatic methacrylate monomers: 9-methyl,10-methacryloyloxymethylanthracene and 9- methacryloyloxymethylanthracene were studied. The concentration of anthracene fluors in methyl methacrylate corresponding to the maximum fluorescence yield has been found, and some parameters describing the excitation and deactivation of the excitation energy of the studied system have been calculated. Next polymer rods have been prepared by copolymerization of methyl methacrylate and two studied fluors of anthracene. The absorption and emission spectra, fluorescence lifetimes, quantum efficiency, and Verdet constants were measured for the obtained polymer rods. The studied anthracene fluors can be useful, at small concentrations, as wavelength shifters in polymethyl methacrylate-core polymeric optical fibers whereas higher concentrations of anthracene fluors can be used to get some enhanced magneto-optical properties of the polymers.
