VAZO™ 88 | (1,1’-Azobis(cyanocyclohexane))

Vazo 88, also known as ACHN (1,1’-Azobis(cyanocyclohexane)), is a free radical source (FRS) typically used as a polymerization initiator. Vazo 88 is used principally in higher temperature polymerizations with excellent solubilty in a wide variety of organic solvents. Vazo 88 will thermally decomposes to generate free radicals and nitrogen gas. More cost-effective than organic peroxides of comparable activity. Benefits include:

  • Higher temperature activation
  • Does not compete in costly sides reactions
  • Head-to-Tail polymerization
  • Unaffected by heavy metals, contamination, additives etc
  • Can polymerize oxidation susceptible compound
