Role of the charge-transfer complex in the alternating copolymerization of N-substituted maleimides and vinyl ethers THE ROLE OF THE CHARGE-TRANSFER COMPLEX IN THE ALTERNATING COPOLYMERIZATION OF N-SUBSTITUTED MALEIMIDES AND VINYL ETHERS BY KURT GORDON OLSON A DISSERTATION PRESENTED TO THE GRADUATE COUNCIL OF THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA IN PARTIAL FULFILLMENT OF THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE DEGREE OF DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA 1981 Copyright 1981 by Kurt Gordon Olson To Leslie ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS I would like to express my deep appreciation and gratitude to my research director, Dr. George B. Butler, for his encouragement and guidance during the course of this work. I would also like to thank Dr. Roy W. King for teaching me how to use the FX-100 NMR spectrometer, and for many helpful discussions. Thanks are also due to Dr. Thieo E. Hogen-Esch for numerous discus- sions. I would like to thank Dr. Wallace Brey and Mr. Paul Kanyha 15 19 1for running the N, F, and 300 MHz H NMR spectra described herein. The friendship and cooperation of my coworkers in the polymer chemistry laboratories are greatly appreciated. Discussions with Mr. David P. Vanderbilt were especially helpful during the course of this research. I would like to thank Miss Patty Hickerson for the skillful typ- ing of this manuscript. Special thanks are due to my wife, Leslie, for her constant encouragement and help. Financial support for this work from the Department of Chemistry, the National Science Foundation (Grant No. DMR80-20206) , Tennessee Eastman Co., Gulf Oil Co., and the University of Florida Graduate School is gratefully acknowledged.
