Title: INITIATOR/HYDROXIDE AND INITIATOR/ALKOXIDE COMPLEXES, SYSTEMS COMPRISING THE COMPLEXES, AND POLYMERIZED COMPOSITIONS MADE THEREWITH
Abstract:
Initiator systems of the invention comprise: a complexed initiator comprising at least one of a complex of a complexing agent comprising at least one hydroxide and an initiator or a complex of a complexing agent comprising at least one alkoxide and an initiator; and a decomplexer. The initiator systems are useful for initiating polymerization of at least one monomer to form polymerized compositions. Kits of the invention useful for forming the polymerized compositions comprise a polymerizable composition and an initiator component, wherein the initiator component comprises a complexed initiator of the invention. Bonding compositions can be prepared by mixing the polymerizable composition of the kit with the respective initiator component.
