Abstract

The phosgene-free synthesis of fast curing (2-oxo-1,3-dioxolan-4-yl)methyl acrylate (propylene carbonate acrylate, PCA) is presented. Polymerization of PCA in the presence of plasticizing propylene carbonate (PC) results in the formation of reversibly swellable elastomeric gels. The ionic conductivity of poly(PCA) plasticized with 50 wt % PC and containing 1 M lithium triflate is 1.7 × 10-5 S/cm. Evidence for Li+-cyclic carbonate interaction was found in 13C CP-MAS NMR spectroscopic analysis of the model compound poly(vinylene carbonate) containing 1 M lithium triflate.
