Polymerization of a Butadiyne Derivative in Crystalline State Stimulated by Radical Initiators
Solid-state polymerization of a butadiyne derivative initiated by radical species was investigated for the first time. In the nanocrystals, monomers were fully converted to the polydiacetylenes as the case of conventional photopolymerization. In bulk crystals, polymerization occurred only the parts near the specific crystal surfaces.
