Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Poly(glycidyl methacrylate) and water-soluble copolymers of glycidyl methacrylate with N-vinylpyrrolidinone were prepared by free-radical-initiated solution polymerization in chloroform. Polymer microstructure was investigated by high-field 1H and 13C nuclear magnetic resonance (n.m.r.), 1H decoupled 13C n.m.r., 1H13C correlation n.m.r. and 135 DEPT (distortionless enhancement by polarization transfer) n.m.r. The combined use of these techniques allowed unequivocal 13C and 1H n.m.r. assignments of carbons and protons to be established. Copolymer composition was thus determined from 1H n.m.r.
