Non-Markovian models of the growth of a polymer chain
Using simple exactly solvable models, we show that event-dependent time delays may lead to significant non-Poisson effects in the statistics of polymer chain growth. The results are confirmed by stochastic simulation of ...
Impact of competitive processes on controlled radical polymerization
The kinetics of radical polymerization have been systematically studied for nearly a century and in general are well understood. However, in light of recent developments in controlled radical polymerization many kinetic ...
This chapter discusses the morphology of latex particles obtained mainly by (mini)emulsion polymerisation. It describes some applications of these particles, and discusses the factors that influence the particle morphology. ...
Dynamic modeling of the morphology of multiphase waterborne polymer particles
Multiphase waterborne polymer particles provide advantages in more demanding applications, and their performance depends on particle morphology. Currently, no dynamic model for the prediction of the development of the ...
Dynamic modeling of the morphology of latex particles with in situ formation of graft copolymer
Modification of the polymer-polymer interfacial tension is a way to tailor-make particle morphology of waterborne polymer-polymer hybrids. This allows achieving a broader spectrum of application properties and maximizing ...
