Abstract: In this work, infrared spectroscopy was used to characterize the degree of double bonds conversion (DC) in six series of poly(urethane-dimethacrylate)s, derived from dicarbamates of oligoethylene glycols monomethacrylates and aliphatic, cycloaliphatic and aromatic diisocyanates. To evaluate the degree of conversion in polymers devoid of aromatic moieties, two methods of calculation have been proposed: internal band ratio method, with carbonyl stretching vibrations as a standard, and a method involving the direct observation of the decrease in the intensity of C=C stretching band. The validity of these methods has been checked on polymers with aromatic structures, by comparing the results with those obtained by the internal band ratio method applying an aromatic band as a reference. A good correlation between the degree of conversion from two internal standard methods, using aromatic band and carbonyl band as references, was obtained. It was shown that the degree of conversion increases as the number of oxyethylene units increases. Polymerization of monomers with aliphatic cores resulted in higher DC values, while those with cycloaliphatic and aromatic cores resulted in lower DC values.
