Poster summary

The so-called ketonization reaction of nitrous oxide (N2O) with butadiene rubbers having different contents of 1,2-units was studied. The ketonization of rubbers (5 g) by N2O (0.186 mol) was performed batchwise in a Parr reactor (100 ml) in a benzene solvent (60 ml) at 200–230°C and elevated pressure. The reaction products were characterized by gel-penetrating chromatography, 13C NMR, and 1H NMR spectroscopy. A series of functionalized polymers and oligomers of a new type, unsaturated polyketones, with varying molecular weights and contents of carbonyl, mainly ketone, groups was obtained. GPC measurements demonstrated that molecular weight of polymers decreases with increasing conversion of C=C bonds and amount of the oxygen introduced from N2O. According to NMR data, upon ketonization of both rubbers, mainly ketone groups randomly distributed along the backbone are formed by the reaction of N2O with internal C=C bonds in 1,4-units.
