Magnetic resonance imaging studies of the polymerisation of methylmethacrylate
Jackson P., Clayden NJ., Walton NJ., Carpenter TA., Hall LD., Jezzard P.
Magnetic resonance imaging has been used to spatially map the time course of the bulk polymerisation of methylmethacrylate. Both two‐dimensional projection and slice‐selective techniques have been employed. Image intensities give qualitative information about viscosity, reaction rates and the localised extent of polymerisation. The importance of proton relaxation measurements in drawing quantitative conclusions is stressed. Copyright © 1991 Society of Chemical Industry
