Polytetrahydrofuran macromonomeric initiators (poly-THF-inimer) were synthesized via cationic polymerization of THF, initiated by the combination of AgSbFe 6 and mono-, di-, or tetra-bromomethyl benzoyl peroxides, followed by termination with methacrylate anion. The macroinimers were characterized by 1 H-NMR and GPC techniques. Copolymerization of poly-THF-inimers with methyl methacrylate (MMA) gave crosslinked block copolymers. Sol-gel analysis and swelling measurements of the crosslinked product are also reported.
