A standard laboratory ultrasonic bath can be used to greatly enhance polymerization of acrylate monomers in the presence of a thermolabile initiator (AIBN) and at a much lower temperature than is otherwise practicable. Initiation appears to result from the action of ultrasonic irradiation on the initiator. Water has also been shown to produce radicals under similar conditions.
