Diethylene gycol bis(allyl carbonate) is widely used for the production of optical plastic for lenses, safety glasses and guards, watch crystal, and instrument windows. The monomer polymerizes via a free radical mechanism using benzoyl peroxide as an initiator to form a thermosetting polycarbonate. This polymerization process involves a long cure cycle at temperature below 100°C. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and rheometric dynamic testing are used to characterize the thermal and kinetic pr…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
