Abstract : In a continuing study of the visible light initiator 2,4-diiodo-3-butoxy-6-fluorone (DIBF), significant post cure was observed in the polymer initially formed from unsaturated polyester resins under both aerobic and anaerobic conditions either in the presence of, or without, ambient light. The extent of post cure varies with the test conditions. A tentative explanation is proposed. jg p. 2
