Vanillin was found to initiate the polymerization of methyl methacrylate(MMA) in benzene at 85 °C. The effects of the concentrations of vanillin and MMA on the rate of polymerization and on the degree of polymerization of poly-MMA were investigated. A probable initiation mechanism proposed. The polymerization is assumed to proceed through a radical mechanism. The polymeric effect of the polymer containing vanillin units was also studied.
