Poly[(N-Acylimino)ethylene]s–Advanced Materials
G. David, A. Ioanid and B. Simionescu

Some possibilities to obtain functional materials based on poly[(Nacylimino)ethylene] (PROZO) macromonomers, such as functional latexes, graft copolymers and gels or interpenetrated polymer networks are discussed. The influence of the macromer structure in the preparation of polymer microparticles with narrow size distribution by different heterogeneous polymerization techniques (soapless emulsion polymerization, dispersion polymerization) was comparatively studied. The experimental data point on the possibility to control the characteristics of the produced materials–envisaging mainly biomedical applications.
