Abstract: The initiation efficiency of 9,10-dioxyanthracene is very low in methyl
methacrylate polymerization at temperatures between 100 and 140°C. This is
explained by a high portion of induced decomposition of anthracene peroxide.
Less than 1% of radicals participates in the initiation of polymerization.
Initiations by benzoyl peroxide and 9,10-dioxyanthracene proceeding simultaneously lead to a high polymerization rate and the possibility of limiting the
