In this study, it has been demonstrated that poly(styrene-co-1-methylpyrenyl methacrylate) macro-photoinitiator (PSMM) containing side chain pyrene moieties were successfully prepared using "radical polymerization method." Firstly, 1-pyrene methanol and methacryloyl chloride were reacted in dichloromethane for 24 h at 0 degrees C in order to give 1-methoxy pyrene methacrylate macromonomer. Then styrene was polymerized with this macromonomer to obtained macro-photoinitiator. The synthesized copolymer is also both computationally and experimentally demonstrated that the macro-photoinitiator obtained has similar absorption characteristics with the parent pyrene molecule. According to obtained results, the synthesized copolymer was more effective in the presence of triethyl amine as a macro-photoinitiator.
