摘要：In this study, syndiotactic-rich poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) is obtained by using a soluble nickle acetylacetonate [Ni(acac)2] and modified methylaluminoxane (MMAO-3A) catalyst system under modest polymerization conditions. The main purpose of this work is concerned with the study of previous conflicting stereospecificity data. Types of MAO, temperature of polymerization, MAO/Ni(acac)2(Al/Ni) mole ratio, and various solvents have been investigated in the MMA polymerization. Particularly, high syndiotactic PMMA [(rr)>91 %] has been obtained when MMAO-3A is used as cocatalyst with Al/Ni ratio of ca. 50 or polymerization temperature ca. 0 °C. As expected, the prepared syndiotacticity-rich PMMA has a higher glass transition temperature (Tg) within 120∼127 °C. The details of the polymerization mechanism, especially in relation to the stereoregularity problems are under investigation. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.
