Abstract

The copolymerizations of phenyl‐4′‐vinylphenylbutadiyne (PVPB) with styrene and methyl methacrylate were carried out under various conditions. PVPB was more readily incorporated in copolymerization than the comonomers, but the diacetylenic group of PVPB interacted with the propagating radical, decreasing the polymerization rate and the molecular weight of copolymer. When the polymerization system became very viscous, crosslinking took place giving light green luminescent gels. The thermal behaviors of copolymers were also studied.
