Melamine-formaldehyde-systems are widely used throughout organic industry due to
their huge range of applications. Major advantages are given by their abrasion and
scratch resistivity as well as in their UV tolerance.
In the presented work 2,4-bis-dimethylamino-6-methylvinylamino-1,3,5-triazin was
copolymerized  with common monomers like styrene, methyl methacrylate, butyl
acrylate and 2-ethylhexyl acrylate by free radical polymerization to form new materials.
The obtained species were analyzed with regard to molecular size, melting properties
and thermal stabilities for a better insight into the overall characteristics of the
materials. Further on, the compositions of the polymers were determined by elemental
Scheme 1: Copolymerization of 2,4-bis-dimethylamino-6-methylvinylamino-1,3,5-triazin with
various monomers yielding copolymers that were analyzed by MALDI-ToF/ToF.
The obtained characteristics ranged from sticky, highly viscous to solid and quite brittle.
The properties of the materials are therefore properly adjustable by the initial
composition of the reaction mixture as well as by the utilized comonomer
