The photoinduced free radical polymerization of methyl methacrylate in the presence of benzophenone and thiophenoxyacetic acid were investigated. It has been observed that adding of diphenyliodoniumhexafluorophosphate (Ph2I+ PF6) salt increased tr re rate of polymerization and molecular weight of polymer. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science S.A.
