VAZO™ 52 | 2-2′-Azobis(2,4-dimethylvaleronitrile)

Vazo 52, known as 2-2′-Azobis(2,4-dimethylvaleronitrile) is a free radical source (FRS) typically used as a polymerization initiator. Vazo 52 has the lowest initiation temperature within the Vazo product line. This product will thermally decompose to generate free radicals and nitrogen gas. Benefits of Vazo 52 include:

  • Ideal for low-temperature polymerization
  • Does not compete in costly sides reactions
  • Low polydispersity; monomer distribution control
  • Unaffected by heavy metals, contamination, additives etc
  • Can polymerize oxidation susceptible compound
