Paper Abstract

Colored micron-sized methyl methacrylate particles have been obtained by dispersion polymerization of methyl methacrylate and an azo-monomer in the presence of vinyl silane oxazoline macromonomer used as stabilizer. The polymerizable dye has a methacryloyl group for copolymerization and suitable azobenzene moiety to improve the solubility in the solvent. The particles showed a spherical morphology and large size distribution, features which were appreciated by scanning electron microscopy. The azo-dye could be covalently incorporated up to 4 wt% in the particles. The thermal properties of the particles were investigated by simultaneous DSC-TGA analysis. The particles showed clear Tgs at 128 °C and thermal stability up to 292 °C. The copolymer's chemical structures were confirmed by 1H-NMR and FT-IR spectroscopy and their average molecular weights were evaluated by SEC.
