High intensity ultrasound has been used to prepare homopolymers and copolymers of styrene, methyl methacrylate and n-butyl methacrylate. High molecular weight homopolymers are formed rapidly during sonication and are then subjected to a degrdation process. The copolymers prepared by this method have similar structure and properties to those prepared using AIBN as an initiator.
