Photochemical behaviour of fluorinated photoinitiators
In a study, the photochemical behaviour of two fluorinated photoinitiators was investigated.
The researchers evaluated the photochemical behaviour of the photoinitiators, named as "2959-IPDI-F" and "2959-IPDI-F-HDDA", through the photolysis and polymerisation of 1, 6- hexanediol diacrylate.
Oxygen inhibition decreases
The oxygen inhibition was obviously decreased due to the migration of fluorinated photoinitiator to the surface, which was proved through XPS, SEM-EDS. The higher concentration of photoinitiator at top layer accelerated the polymerisation rate and reduced the oxygen sensitivity. A fluorine element enriched and folded surface could be developed only through simple photopolymerisation initiated by fluorinated photoinitiators.
The study is published in: Progress in Organic Coatings, Vol. 114, January 2018.
Understanding Coatings Raw Materials
What are paints and coatings composed of? This efficient reference book offers an optimum overview of the different constituents of the different types of coatings, explaining the chemistry, system and impacts of coating raw materials. That way, newcomers to the field of coatings gain a quick basic knowledge whereas chemists and laboratory assistants will find valuable insights on future trends and developments in the field of raw materials.
