Abstract

A novel template-less method for polymerization of ethyl 2-cyanoacrylate to form an intrinsically nanofibrous polymer is investigated. Effect of the anionic initiator used for polymerization is examined to explain the mechanism of formation of nanofibers or film of polymer. A suitable classification of the initiators is established based on the Hard Soft Acid Base principle to explain the mechanism. Infrared analysis, SEM and Gel permeation chromatography is utilized for characterization of the different polymer samples.
