Abstract : It was previously demonstrated that polyfunctional vinylsiloxanes were polymerized by radiation, forming high molecular polymers. On examination of the molecular weights and characteristic viscosities of these polymers the hypothesis that polymer molecules are soluble microgels was arrived at. The present work examines some properties of polymerization of these monomers. The hypotheses were confirmed. The polymer is a soluble microgel. The possibility of inducing polymerization of vinyl monomers with microgels of polyvinylsiloxanes was established, and radiolysis and polymerization of polyfunctional vinylsiloxanes were studied.
