Abstract

Recent efforts elucidating the kinetic behavior of a system consisting of diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A vinyl ester (VE) and 2-acrylamido 2-methyl propane sulfonic acid (AMPS) are presented. This is a cross-linked system that can potentially be used as proton exchange membranes in fuel cell applications. The hydrophobic VE is copolymerized with hydrophilic AMPS in a common solvent, dimethyl formamide via a free radical polymerization mechanism that is thermally initiated by benzoyl peroxide. Determination of the reactivity ratios using the copolymerization composition equation is contemplated to better understand the copolymer structure being formed. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AIChE Annual Meeting and Fall Showcase (Cincinnati, OH 10/30/2005-11/4/2005).
