Abstract: In benzoyl peroxide initiated polymerization of methyl methacrylate the
inhibition effects of tetraphenylhydrazine were examined at 60°C. Tetraphenylhydrazine
was found to accelerate the decomposition of benzoyl peroxide
in the polymerization process and to inhibit the growth reaction of polymerization.
No proportionality between the inhibition periods and concentration
of the initiator was obs3rved. It is assumed that even the decomposition
products of tetraphenylhydrazine accelerate decomposition of the benzoyl
peroxide and are involved in the polymerization transfer reactions.
