Abstract

In organic chemistry microwave irradiation has become a common heat source and the use of microwave irradiation is also increasingly studied for polymerization reactions. Polymers have been synthesized at long reaction times by classical thermal methods. In contrast, microwave-assisted polymer synthesis is a well-known and most useful method, which is requiring shorter reaction times. In this study, our aims are to compare THPS and MAPS methods between themselves, and investigate the effect of temperature in MAPS method at different parameters such as reaction times, weight average molecular weight (M-w), polydispersity index (PDI), hydrodynamic radius (Rh), intrinsic viscosity ([eta]) and Mark Houwink equation constant (a) of copolymers.
