EMULSION POLYMERIZATION METHOD
The present invention addresses the problem of providing: an imine compound which is a surfactant that is usable in emulsion polymerization and is able to be easily decomposed after use by means of a weak acid such as an organic acid
an imine micelle which contains the imine compound
an emulsion which contains the imine micelle
an emulsion polymerization method which uses the emulsion
and an aldehyde compound that is a synthesis intermediate of the imine compound. An emulsion polymerization method of the present invention is characterized by comprising: a step of obtaining an imine micelle from a specific aldehyde compound and a basic amino acid in an aqueous solvent
and a step of emulsion polymerizing an ethylene monomer in an emulsion that contains the imine micelle.
