Summary

In situ photochemicallyinitiated free radical polymerization was used to obtain an organophilicbentonite—polymer composite. The photoinitiation process of this polymerizationcould occur with the use of sunlight, but process is continued in dark, causedby the, so-called, dark reaction. The components of polymerizing formulationare: monomer — [2-(methacryloxy)ethyl]trimethylammonium chloride (I), electrondonor — 2-(dimethylamine)ethyl methacrylate (II) and crosslinking monomer (III)Obtained composites are flexible and insoluble in water, but they do notexhibit good mechanical properties.
