N-methyl imidazolium phosphotungstic salt has been synthesized and used as a special catalyst for photopolymerization of vinyl monomers. This is a fast and smooth reaction, and high molecular weight polymers with narrow polydispersity are obtained within 60 min. The compound was structurally characterized by elemental analysis, IR spectroscopy, and 1H NMR spectroscopy. The electrochemical property is determined on a CHI 660 electrochemistry workstation. The polymerization initiated by N-methyl imidazolium phosphotungstic salt showed controlling characteristics, the catalyst can be easily isolated from polymer product, and reused for at least 10 times.
