UV (light) Active Monomers

Polymers with aliphatic backbones often show little absorbance of light and usually do not absorb in the near and mid UV spectral range. UV absorbing monomers improve the capture of light at these wavelengths. These absorbers can be used to shield the polymer system or an underlying substrate from degradation by UV light, e.g. phenethyl methacrylate containing polymers for optical lenses. Additionally, some UV absorbing materials can act as sensitizers to promote photochemical reactions.
