General description

4-Vinylbenzyl chloride (VBC) is commonly used as a monomer that belongs to the class of aryl chlorides and contains both a vinyl group (CH2=CH-) and a benzyl chloride group (C6H4CH2Cl) in its structure. It is used as a reactive building block in various polymerization reactions to synthesize different types of polymers with excellent thermal stability, chemical resistance and good film-forming properties. It is commonly utilized in the production of resins, coatings, adhesives, and ion-exchange resins. It offers versatility in polymer synthesis, allowing for the introduction of desired functionalities into polymers.

It is also:
  • A component of ion exchange resins, photo-resist polymers, cross-linkable fibers, coupling agents and electroconducting polymers.
  • Starter for various copolymer preparations.
  • Dual functional monomer. Readily derivatized by chloride displacement.

Application

4-Vinylbenzyl chloride can be used as a monomer to synthesize:
  • The hypercross-linked polymer for supercapacitor applications. Incorporation of 4-vinyl benzyl chloride contributes to the formation of a porous structure and specific surface area which facilitate efficient electrolyte ion diffusion and provide ample sites for charge storage, leading to enhanced electrochemical performance.
  • The polymeric thin films by the matrix-assisted pulsed laser evaporation (MAPLE) technique. The resulting polymeric thin films can exhibit non-linear optical effects such as optical second harmonic generation, electro-optic modulation, or optical frequency conversion. These properties make them suitable for various applications in non-linear optic devices.

The synthesis of self-doped conducting polypyrrole-grafted graphene sheets (GS-PPy) for non-volatile memory applications is reported. First, the alkyne-modified graphene sheets (GS-alkyne) were covalently functionalized with a water-soluble polymer containing numerous anionic SO3(-) dopants by a copper-catalyzed click reaction. Then, polypyrrole
