Abstract

The room temperature ionic liquid, 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate, [C(4)mim][PF6] was found to be an efficient plasticizer for poly( methyl methacrylate), prepared by in situ radical polymerization in the ionic liquid medium; the polymers have physical characteristics comparable with those containing traditional plasticizers and retain greater thermal stability.
