Free radicle polymerization of methyl methacrylate is one of the most successful methods to polymerize widely explored biomaterial because of its biocompatibility. Polymerization of methyl methacrylate with thiourea can be prepared by free radical polymerization reaction. Thiourea is also added during the polymerization as functional end group in poly(methyl methacrylate). Ferric chloride initiator has been used to initiate polymerization reaction and to attach thiourea group at the end of chain through radical addition process. The chemical structure of the synthesized polymer has been characterized by 1H-NMR, Fourier Transform Infrared Microscopy (FTIR) and UV-Spectra. Incorporation of thiourea at the end of polymer chain which is bonded to the carbon atom of PMMA was demonstrated by 1H-NMR and FTIR.
