Abstract

Isothermal methyl methacrylate (MMA) conversion-time data were obtained via differential scanning calorimetry, equating conversion to relative heat generated during the reaction. Temperatures were calibrated using melt transitions determined at 0.1 - 0.5 C heating rate. Molecular weight averages were determined using gel permeation chromatography and monodisperse PMMA standards.
