Summary

Free radical linear polymerization with instantaneous initiation was simulated on the simple cubic lattice. The monomer conversion, polydispersity index and average degree of polymerization were predicted by using the percolation model which was based on computer-simulated self-avoiding walks on the lattice. The adjusting parameters such as reactivity, termination modes, coordination number of given lattice were introduced.
