By exposure to ultraviolet and gamma radiation and by the usual methods of thermal polymerization, the stereospecific polymerization of methyl aryloxymethacrylates was carried out at different temperatures in several solvents. Triad tacticity values of the polymers obtained by free-radical and ionic routes were computed from nuclear magnetic resonance spectral data. Results of this investigation support our earlier observation that, under the conditions used, heterotactic content is the maximum in most of these polymers, thereby justifying the high steric effect of the bulky and polar aryloxy side chain which offers equal isotactic and syndiotactic placements.
